Background: Congenital cyst eye is developmental abnormal arrangement of tissues .It is an extremely rare ocular malformation and is the rare cystic orbital lesion, usually evident at birth and has a varied presentation. A partial or complete failure in the involution of the primary optic vesicle resulting in the formation of a cyst. Case presentation: We report a case of unilateral congenital cystic eye, it was excised completely, and histopathology was confirmed the cystic nature of lesion. Conclusion: congenital cystic eye should be suspected in infants with an unrecognizable ocular globe. It is an extremely rare condition and with only 40 previous cases reported in the literature.
