Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 20-year-old soldier trapped under a minibus for 90 minutes sustained a crush injury to his chest and a maxillofacial fracture. 2 days later he complained of decreased visual acuity in both eyes. Funduscopy revealed Purtscher's retinopathy. The traumatologist should be aware of this type of indirect eye injury, and should request ophthalmological assessment and follow-up in such patients.
