Small Hyphaema 1

HISTORY

Direct blunt trauma to the eye.

A large periorbital haematoma and blurred vision. 

Difficult to examine clinically.

ULTRASOUND FINDINGS

 In the anterior chamber there is an small and discrete echogenic lesion.

It does not display posterior shadowing nor reverberation.

Correlated clinically the lesion corresponds to a clot that has formed in the anterior chamber, rather than formed the classic layering characteristic of a hyphaema.

Also evident is the thickened eye lid - due to periorbital haematoma, that made clinical examination difficult.
