To date, there have been very few reported cases of orbital and/or subconjunctival emphysema from a compressed air injury. What makes this case even more unusual is the fact that no orbital fracture was identified. Traditionally, it was thought that the presence of subcutaneous emphysema was indicative of a fracture. This case shows that other mechanisms can lead to its presence.
