Iqbal S., Samsudin AR: Unilateral telecanthus following Naso-Orbito-Ethmoidal fracture:A Case Report and Literature Review. Mal. J. Oral Maxillofax. Surg. 2004: 3: 32–37.

Abstract: Naso-orbito-ethmoidal fractures are not uncommon fractures of the maxillofacial complex. 4.3%-7.1% of facial fractures are associated with traumatictelecanthus. The complex anatomy of the region and difficult access makes it adifficult task to manage this fracture. Early surgical management is recommendedbecause delayed repair or inadequate treatment predisposes to defects that may bedifficult to correct with secondary procedures. A case of late treatment of NOEfracture with traumatic telecanthus and blindness is presented.
