Hemangioblastomas (HBs) are uncommon tumors that occur as sporadic lesions or multiple lesions associated with von Hippel–Lindau (VHL) disease. We report a case of a 77-year-old male with an unusual clinical presentation of HB mimicking meningioma, involving the left anterior temporal fossa, skull, infratemporal fossa, and orbit, and compressing the lateral rectus muscle and optic nerve causing exophthalmos, without a diagnosis of VHL-related HB.
