Bilateral proptosis in a child with vitamin C deficiency
International Ophthalmology, 07/05/2012
Saha P et al. – The authors describe a case of diaplegic cerebral palsy presented with sudden onset of bilateral proptosis and swollen and tender knee joints. Subsequent computed tomography of the orbit revealed hematoma in the superior aspect of both orbits in the extraconal position. X–ray of the knee joints revealed bony changes consistent with scurvy. After 6 weeks of treatment with vitamin C orally, the proptosis and the bony changes returned to normal.
