Abstract Background: Orbital sub-periosteal haematoma (OSH) is usually caused by orbital trauma. We present a case of spontaneous OSH and review the literature on this condition. Methods: We present a case of sub-periosteal haematoma secondary to migraine and vigorous emesis. Discussion: OSH is very rare; this case highlights the clinical features of the condition and that rapid spontaneous resolution can occur. We review the literature on emesis- or valsava-induced OSH and discuss possible mechanisms for its formation in conjunction with migraine.
