A 34-year-old male patient was referred to us as a case of non-resolving suprachoroidal hemorrhage. History revealed decrease in right eye vision following trauma to forehead. B scan ultrasonography (USG) of the right eye showed a high-reflective structure indenting the globe. It turned out to be an inferiorly displaced fracture fragment from the orbital roof on computerized tomography (CT) scan. The choroidal elevation disappeared after open reduction of the fracture fragment and patient had good recovery of vision. USG and CT scan were helpful in the diagnosis and management of this case.
