Background: Orbital hypertelorism is defined as a lateralization of the total orbit. This condition is associated almost always with congenital abnormalities. An acquired total displacement of the orbit is almost impossible once the bony pillars of the craniofacial complex are established. The aim of this article was to discuss a case of a young man with paranasal sinus mucocele, who developed OHT.
