Abstract

A deep anterior chamber of the globe is a clinical sign of posterior scleral rupture, an ophthalmologic emergency. On axial CT, the depth of the anterior chambers of ruptured globes was greater than the depth of the anterior chambers of normal globes. The discrepancy between the depth of the two anterior chambers in any patient can also suggest posterior scleral rupture.
