Subperiosteal hematoma of the orbit associated with subfrontal extradural hematoma

Subperosteal hematoma is rarely associated with extradural hematoma and orbital roof fracture. We report a case observed in a 16-year-old boy who developed exophthalmos, diplopia and visual loss after blunt head trauma. Computed tomography demonstrated the subperiosteal hematoma associated with a thin extradural hematoma and an orbital roof fracture. The hematomas were removed during the same procedure via fronto-orbito craniotomy. Surgery led to complete recovery without functional sequelae. We stress the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of post-traumatic exophthalmos.
