Abstract

CHAVES, Jacinto Barbosa Lay et al. Subperiosteal hematoma of the orbit: case report. Arq. Bras. Oftalmol. [online]. 2007, vol.70, n.4, pp. 693-697. ISSN 0004-2749.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-27492007000400022.

We describe a sixteen years old male patient that suffered a craniocerebral trauma and presented at the emergency room, with ocular pain, palpebral hematoma and left eye proptosis. Orbital computed tomography showed left subperiosteal orbital hematoma. A surgical drainage was performed. Subperiosteal hematoma of the orbit is a rare cause of proptosis; its early diagnosis must be made in order to avoid possible complications.
