Delayed onset of upper lid edema with exuberant chemosis developed in a 3-year-old girl following blunt periorbital trauma. Examination under anesthesia demonstrated a tightly everted upper tarsus that focally compressed the underlying conjunctiva at the superior tarsal border. Injection of subconjunctival hyaluronidase followed by local compression and temporary tarsorrhaphy resulted in rapid resolution of the chemosis and restoration of the normal lid position.
