A 16 years old male, a known case of Hemophilia B, presented with sudden onset of painful proptosis of the left eye associated with diplopia. He was diagnosed as a case of retrobulbar haemorrhage of the left orbit. There was no history of trauma. He showed a favourable response to conservative management with factor IX replacement with no visual loss. Ocular complications of hemophilia are very rare. Spontaneous retro bulbar hemorrhage in a case of Hemophilia is a very rare occurrence and hence is presented for its rarity.
