Abstract

A patient with a penetrating thoraco-abdominal injury produced by a pencil left in situ is described. CT scan accurately demonstrated the innocuous path of the pencil which was removed without sequelae. CT scan may be valuable in the management of penetrating injuries of the trunk with weapon still in place.
