Abstract


Background: Retrobulbar hematoma is a rare complication after the repair of an orbital wall fracture, but the caution is required because the condition can cause blindness.

Case presentation: In this article, 3 cases of retrobulbar hematoma after the surgical repair of an orbital wall fracture are reported. In the first patient, the permanent loss of vision was involved, while in the second patient, the author was able to prevent loss of vision by performing immediate decompression after definite diagnosis and consulting with an ophthalmologist. In the third patient, there was no surgical treatment involved; he recovered on his own without major sequelae.

Conclusions: Retrobulbar hematoma is a very serious condition that can result in blindness. Thus, when it is recognized, every effort should be made to preserve the patient’s vision and prevent blindness.
