Abstract:
A two-month-old female German shepherd puppy was presented with a history of bilateral proptosis after dog bite. It was recumbent having severe pain and epistaxis from left nostril. Optic nerve and rectus muscle of the right eye were severed. Optic nerve of left eye was intact, but the ocular muscles were damaged with no pupillary light reflex. Hence, right eye was enucleated and permanent tarsorrhaphy was done. Left eyeball was repositioned and temporary tarsorrhaphy was performed. Computed tomography of the skull revealed blow-out fractures of the pars orbitalis segment of the frontal bone which forms the left medial orbital wall. Fracture of zygomatic bone and medial orbital wall extending to the floor was found on the right side. 3D reconstructed image clearly revealed marked displacement of Pars orbitalis fracture fragment in the left eye, compressing the cerebrum. Due to excessive trauma and poor prognosis, it didn’t survive beyond two weeks.
