Abstract

Blow-out fractures involving the orbital floor can be divided into pure, when limited to orbital floor, and impure, when they involve the infraorbital margin. This article aims to: discuss the difficulty of immediate diagnosis when there are no evident clinical or radiographic signs; highlight the importance of the computed tomography scan; and, present a clinical case of pure blow-out fracture, involving a 10-year-old child, treated through reconstruction of the orbital floor using titanium mesh.

Keywords

Orbital fracture, pediatric patient, facial trauma.
