Abstract

Orbital emphysema is an abnormal condition in which air is present within the orbit. We report a rare case of a 19-year-old man who suffered syncopic attacks caused by sniffles following orbital emphysema as a result of trauma. Treating rhinitis is important in patients with orbital emphysema, and patients with cardiac disorders in addition to those with this condition must be warned about the risks of sniffles, sneezing, or nose blowing.
