Orbital hemorrhage with proptosis following a dacryocystorhinostomy.

Abstract

A 65-year-old patient with chronic leukemia underwent an uncomplicated dacryocystorhinostomy. On the first postoperative day, the eye was proptotic and chemotic with restricted movements. A CT scan revealed a medial juxtabulbar hemorrhage that blocked the surgical osteotomy. A clot was locally suctioned through the nose, and the symptoms resolved over the following weeks.
