Abstract

The traumatic asphyxia or Perthes syndrome is uncommon. It is a clinical syndrome associating an ecchymotic mask consisting of cervicofacial cyanosis, petechiae and subconjunctival hemorrhage to neurological and ocu¬lar symptoms. The authors report a pediatric case of 8-year-old boy who was a highway accident victim. He presented a cervicofacial cyanosis, petechiae and immediate massive bilateral sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. The attitude was limited to a clinical monitoring. The decline is twelve months.
