Removal of the subperiosteal hematoma and correction of the fracture were successful. Subperiosteal hematoma is an unusual complication after inadvertent neurosurgical manipulation. Inadvertent neurosurgical manipulation caused an orbital wall fracture and subperiosteal hematoma, which were successfully treated. ©2004The American Society of Opthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Inc.
