Traumatic bilateral globe avulsion (case report)

By Hassan Razmjua and Marjan Masjedi

Abstract

Avulsion of the globe is a rare event, and there are only a few reports of true total enucleation of the globes in the literature. We report a 20-year-old man who was a victim of car accident, with bilateral enucleation of the globe. This is the third reported case of bilateral subluxated globes that were successfully repositioned in the orbits. Although the patient had no light perception vision, preserving his one eye reduced the psychological stress of sudden traumatic loss of vision for him and his relatives
