Unenhanced axial CT scan shows complete posterior dislocation of the right lens.
3 case question available
Blunt trauma typically displaces the cornea and anterior sclera posteriorly making a deformation of the globe.The deformation causes the complete (in these case) or partial rupture of zonular attachments. After complete rupture, the lens dislocates almost always posteriorly, but less commonly anteriorly.
Nontraumatic lens dislocation can occur in systemic connective tissue disorders, e.g. Marfan syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and homocystinuria.
