A Rare Case of Vomiting-Induced Retrobulbar Hemorrhage
Retrobulbar hemorrhage may result in sudden accumulation of blood in the retrobulbar space which can lead to an orbital compartment syndrome. This potentially blinding condition is characterized by a rapid increase in intra-orbital pressure. While most commonly associated with orbital trauma, it may rarely occur with Valsalva events in patients on anticoagulants. In this report, we present a case of a retrobulbar hemorrhage secondary to self-induced vomiting, occurring in a patient on no anticoagulation medication.
