Abstract :

Every orbital trauma represents a serious condition, because in most of the cases is associated with face and head trauma. We represent an unusual case of 12 years old boy with multiple face trauma associated with bilateral globe avulsion and optic nerve transection. He was involved in a tractor accident while driving it. The first signs to be notice as a serious condition from the GP are bilateral globe luxation and acute loss of vision. In this situation we have to pay attention about these signs as they may be caused by fracture of midface and orbit. Because of the closely related anatomy between orbit and midface with brain and blood vessels, this kind of injury may be life threatening. This situation is an emergency which needs multidisciplinary approach. This case should raise awareness on preventing injuries caused by driving agriculture machines from children, especially in developing countries where these injuries are more often.
