SILVA, Marcus Tulius T.  and  CURI, André Land. Blindness and total ophthalmoplegia after aesthetic polymethylmethacrylate injection: case report. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 2004, vol.62, n.3b, pp.873-874. ISSN 0004-282X.

Microspheres of polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA) are exciting new soft-tissue fillers that are becoming increasing popular for facial rejuvenation. Some reports of side effects of this procedure are basically in respect to dermal reaction, with late-onset granulomatous lesion with giant cells and vacuoles. We report blindness and total ophthalmoplegia after PMMA injection into glabellar area in a healthy woman and review the literature.

Keywords : polymethyl-methacrylate; facial injection; blindness; ophtalmoplegia.
