This 35 year-old woman was punched in the left eye and the forehead four days ago and developed a left subconjunctival haemorrhage and bilateral ecchymosis. The ecchymosis was the result of haemorrhage from broken forehead vessels which tracked down to the subcutaneous spaces in both eyelids.


The eyelid ecchymosis resulted from blood tracking down from broken

forehead vessels.
