Orbital Apex fractures are rare, but debilitating illness affecting vision and they are mostly associated with intracranial injury. We report a four year old child with isolated orbital apex fracture following trivial trauma to his right side of face, presenting 48 hours after injury. He was evaluated and found to have orbital apex fracture with optic neuropathy on right eye. Patient’s mother was explained regarding the poor prognosis and no improvement was observed during follow-up. We highlight this case because of the lack of early diagnosis and need for full evaluation in suspected injuries in pediatric population.
