A 22-year-old man presented to our accident and emergency department an hour after a motor vehicle accident. He had no history of seizures. On examination, he was alert, haemodynamically stable and his Glasgow Coma Score was 15/15. Both pupils were normal in size and reacted to light. His left eye was slightly protruded, and a rigid radio antenna about 12 cm long emerged from below the left lateral canthus (Figure 1). His visual acuity was normal, and he had no diplopia.
