One week previous to examination, the right eye of this 38-year-old man was injured by a stick. The eye was proptosed, gangrenous, and desiccated, and the lids were in apposition behind the globe (Fig 1 and 2). The left eye was normal. Enucleation was performed, at which time no injury to the lids was found.
