A 49-YEAR-OLD man had gradually worsening double vision and a history
of blowout fracture of the left orbital floor that had been repaired using
a silicone sheet. Ophthalmic examination revealed proptosis of the left eye
(Figure 1), along with a large inferior
choroidal elevation (Figure 2).
Radiologic findings are shown in Figure 3, while histologic features are presented in Figure 4 and Figure 5.
