Abstract

An orbital floor fracture is caused by a sudden increase in the intraorbital pressure, resulting from the application of a traumatic force to the soft tissues of the orbit. The fracture is complicated by diplopia or enophthalmos. Orbital floor fractures are caused by the automobile accident, human fist or the ball. Our hospital performed reconstruction of an orbital floor fracture by grafting parietal bone on the fractured orbital floor area of the patient who visited our hospital 4 months after the hit on his left eye by a fist. We now report this case with the review of various aspects of an orbital floor fracture.
