Orbital wall infarction and subperiosteal haematomas are unusual manifestations of sickling disorders. Here we report an 11-year-old girl with sickle cell anaemia having multiple skull infarctions including the orbital bony structures associated with subperiosteal haematomas. The diagnosis was made by MRI, which showed bone marrow changes and associated haemorrhagic collections. The patient was successfully managed without surgical intervention.

Orbital compression syndrome in sickle cell crisis.
TLDR
A 9-year-old boy with known homozygous sickle cell disease who developed unilateral exophthalmia and eyelid swelling during a Sickle cell crisis was diagnosed with orbital compression syndrome, which is a rare complication of sicklecell disease.

Orbital wall infarction in sickle cell disease: MR evaluation.
TLDR
MR not only provides excellent morphologic information but, by characterizing the nature of the collection as containing blood, and by identifying bone marrow abnormality, can lead to the diagnosis of orbital wall infarction.
Sickle cell disease with orbital infarction and epidural hematoma
TLDR
Imaging findings are reported in a 16-year-old boy with sickle cell disease with orbital infarction and epidural hematoma, probably related to vaso-occlusive episodes and the tearing of small vessels.
Proptosis, Skull Infarction, and Retro-orbital and Epidural Hematomas in a Child With Sickle Cell Disease
TLDR
A Saudi child with homozygous Sickle cell discease presented with bilateral periorbital swelling, right-sided proptosis, skull bone infarcts, and retro-orbital and epidural hematomas, which are rare in patients with sickle cell disease.
Orbital infarction in sickle cell disease.
TLDR
Three cases were described in which frontal headache, proptosis, and lid edema were seen with infarction of the orbital bone in sickle cell disease.
Facial bone infarcts in sickle cell syndromes.
TLDR
Bone marrow scans were positive for infarction in five of the six episodes during which they were obtained, which highlights the usefulness of this technique in the diagnosis of facial bone infarcts.
