Retrobulbar hemorrhage is one of the major complications following endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) with a microdebrider. Symptoms and physical findings include temporary blindness, ophthalmoplegia, mydriasis, ptosis, proptosis and eyelid ecchymosis. Recently, we experienced a case of retrobulbar hemorrhage after an ESS with a microdebrider resulting from anterior ethmoid artery rupture. We hereby present this case with an emphasis on the importance of prevention, identification and management of retrobulbar hematoma.
