Abstract Titanium mesh implants have proved their effectiveness in the reconstruction of fractures of the orbital wall, and their compromise between stiffness and elasticity allows for optimal support of the orbital contents. However, after recurrent orbital trauma, these implants (even when properly positioned) can become a potential "penetrating object" that threatens the critical adjacent anatomical structures. We report the case of a patient with recurrent facial trauma whose orbit had previously been reconstructed with a titanium implant, and which resulted in severe deformation.
