INTERESTING CASE REPORT-FOREIGN BODY ORBIT

This article was published in volume 2 issue 1 of online journal of otolaryngology JORL.

A 13 years old boy, had a wound on the infraorbital margin caused by a metal foreign body, which stayed in close to the orbit. X-ray and echographic examinations of the orbit were not conclusive regarding the question whether this foreign body was situated within or outside the eyeball. Only CT imaging showed location of the foreign body. Foreign body was extracted by the same healed wound site.
