Abstract

While periocular ecchymosis commonly develops following surgery or traumatic injury to the orbit, the spontaneous appearance of periocular ecchymosis in children can indicate the presence of life-threatening conditions including pediatric malignancies (neuroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, leukemia) and hematologic disorders (aplastic anemia, thrombocytopenia). Vascular malformations (capillary hemangioma, lymphangioma, orbital varix), inflammatory conditions (orbital myositis, amyloidosis), pertussis, and Blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome are benign differential considerations with visual complications in certain instances. Since spontaneous periocular ecchymosis (SPE) can be encountered by pediatric subspecialists both within and outside ophthalmology, the authors present a review of the current literature integrating the clinical features, latest diagnostic investigations, and updates in management for the entities that cause spontaneous periocular ecchymosis in children. A comprehensive and current understanding of the differential diagnosis elicited by this unique ocular finding will aid the clinician in managing long-term visual consequences and coordinating with appropriate pediatric subspecialists.
