Right orbital medial wall blow-out fracture with postseptal and pronounced eyelids emphysema. Foci of thick mucosa in some paranasal sinuses and enlarged cerebral ventricles are also seen.
The case demonstrates the non-contrast MDCT feature of the pronounced eyelids emphysema due to minimally displaced orbital medial wall blow-out fracture. It denotes that there is not always a correlation between the severity of the fracture and the emphysema.
