PANDA SIGN

A 7 years old girl presented with head injury due to a fall from the roof 2 hours ago. The GCS at the time of presentation was 10/15. Later she developed ecchymosis around both eyes suggestive of fracture base of skull. CT Scan of the brain did not reveal any collection and the patient was managed conservatively with a successful outcome and no deficit.
