    Abstract

    Subconjunctival hemorrhage may be associated with many forms of trauma including Valsalva's maneuvers induced by heavy lifting, straining at stool, vomiting, and coughing. It may also occur from innocuous minor trauma associated with merely rubbing the eye, or it may be associated with sudden venous congestion of the head. The accumulation of blood beneath the conjunctiva may also occur secondary to blunt trauma or blast injury [1–3]. This case report represents an incident of an extremely unusual manifestation of subconjunctival hemorrhage associated with a gunshot wound to the chest.
