Normally, I’d say that someone who goes out to a bar and talks smack should get what’s coming to him. Even I think what happened to this poor guy was a little more than what he had coming to him.
The patient went to a nightclub and had a few drinks. Then he reportedly began to engage in “smack talk.” The person to whom this patient talked smack got mad. A fight ensued. While they were rolling around on the floor, said smack talk recipient pulled a Little Jack Horner on the patient’s face. He didn’t gouge the patient’s eyes out, he gouged them in – as in he tried to palpate the back of the patient’s eye sockets with his thumbs. Needless to say, the fight ended rather quickly after this maneuver.
The major findings on the CT scan show an intact eyeball on the left hand side of the scan (which is the patient’s right eye) and some swelling of the right eyelid. The right hand side of the scan shows the remnants of the patient’s left eye. Lens (small round white oval near the top) is pushed inward. Bleeding into the globe (eyeball). Loss of globe contour. In fact, smack talk recipient gouged so hard that he fractured the patient’s eye socket and caused bleeding into the patient’s maxillary sinus (not shown).
To end his stellar day, the patient was reportedly the one arrested for starting the fight.
