The term communicating exophthalmos is suggested for a condition where manual retropulsion of one eye results in proptosis of the other eye. This sign was observed in a patient with bilateral pulsating exophthalmos. The pulsating exophthalmos was ascribed to orbital roof defects in combination with post-traumatic hydrocephalus. It was controlled by a shunting procedure.
