Figure 1: A 29-year-old female presented to the emergency room after blunt left periocular trauma. Examination revealed left periorbital edema and ecchymosis, patchy subconjunctival hemorrhages and air trapped within the palpebral lobe of the lacrimal gland (Figure 1A). Orbital computed tomography demonstrated left orbital floor and medial wall fractures with associated preseptal and orbital emphysema including confirmation of a well circumscribed pocket of air within the left palpebral lobe of the lacrimal gland (Figure 1B).
