Abstract

Penetrating cerebral injuries caused by foreign bodies are rare in civilian neurosurgical trauma although there are various reports of blast or gunshot injuries in warfare due to multiple foreign bodies like pellets and nails. In our case a 30-year-old man presented to neurosurgery clinic with signs and symptoms of right-sided weakness after suicide bomb attack. The skull X-ray showed a single intracranial nail. Small craniotomy was done and the nail was removed with caution to avoid injury to surrounding normal brain tissue.
