Purpose: To report a case of spontaneous globe luxation in a 4-year old with unknown cause. Methods: Case Report. Results: The patient underwent globe restitution using topical anesthesia, and no visual complications were associated with the procedure. Post procedure CT scan revealed normal orbital structures and contents. Conclusion: Spontaneous globe luxation is a rare entity, generally associated to thyroid orbitopathy or floppy eyelid syndrome and shallow orbits. Techniques to manage this dramatic event range from bare manual restitution or the same technique aided by paper clip to lateral tarsorrhaphy.
