After orbital trauma, medial rectus (MR) and inferior rectus (IR) muscles are the most frequently injured, while the oblique muscles are the least frequently injured. This can be probably because of the anatomical specifications of these muscles within the orbit. It is very unusual to find an isolated muscle injury or hematoma without any other orbital or ocular damage. We report here the case of a 7-year-old boy who presented with an isolated superior rectus muscle (SRM) hematoma after a blunt orbital trauma.
