Eye, Retrobulbar - Hemorrhage
comment:Hemorrhage of the retrobulbar region ( Figure 1 and Figure 2 ) is characterized by accumulations of extravasated blood. Retrobulbar and/or ocular inflammation may also be present. Such findings are generally the result of trauma from retro-orbital bleeding procedures.
recommendation:Retrobulbar hemorrhage should be diagnosed and assigned a severity grade. If it is secondary to another pathologic process (e.g., intraorbital neoplasia), it should not be diagnosed separately, but should be described in the pathology narrative.
