Bruising of skin and underlying tissues of the face caused by a direct blow. Contusions cause bleeding from ruptured small capillaries that allow blood to infiltrate muscles, tendons or other soft tissue. The face is particularly vulnerable to contusion because skin is so close to hard, underlying bone. (Note:Contusions and other injuries of the eyes, nose and ears require special considerations and care. They are addressed separately in this book.)
BODY PARTS INVOLVED
