Abstract

We report a 21-month-old boy with a sutured laceration of the left upper eyelid with drainage of cerebrospinal fluid. Careful evaluation, including computerized tomography, revealed a penetrating injury of the left orbital wall and a linear bone fracture. The wound was resutured carefully. There was no cerebrospinal fluid leakage in the postoperative follow-up period.
