RUIZ-MARTIN, M.M.; FERNANDEZ-PRIETO, A.; VIEITEZ-VAZQUEZ, J. y MOSQUERA-LEZCANO, R.. Penetrating orbitocranial injury after trivial eyelid trauma: a case report. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2007, vol.82, n.12, pp.785-788. ISSN 0365-6691.
Case report: We report a patient who, while in a drunken state, sustained a cerebral hemorrhage associated with an apparently trivial eyelid injury after an aggressive attack with a metallic object. Discussion: Any apparently trivial eyelid injury may be associated with serious cerebral lesions. Making a correct diagnosis that distinguishes between that of drunkenness and an organic injury is essential, because failure to do so may result in both clinical and legal repercussions.
