Isolated Rupture of Extraocular Muscles in A Severe Penetrating Trauma–
“A Globe Shielded by Muscles”
AbstractTraumatic rupture of an extraocular muscle is rare. We report an unusual
case of Superior oblique and medial rectus rupture after a penetrating
trauma by metallic hook. Surgical repair was combined with botulinum
toxin injection into the ipsilateral antagonist to prevent consequent
contracture thus also augmenting the orthoptic outcome.
