Abstract

A 63-year-old man presented with marked swelling and inability to open the left eye immediately after laparoscopic nephrectomy for a left renal mass. A diagnosis of periorbital emphysema was made, and within 3 days, the emphysema spontaneously improved. This case demonstrates that periorbital emphysema, a rare condition, can be a benign complication of laparoscopic nephrectomy.
