Orbital compartment syndrome poses a significant risk for vision loss if not promptly treated. The authors report a patient with neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus presenting with bilateral orbital compartment syndrome and rapid decompensation leading to uncal and tonsillar herniation. While extremely rare, bilateral orbital compartment syndrome should prompt consideration of systemic etiologies including neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus.
