Computed tomography (CT) revealed an intraorbital foreign body. The hospital neurosurgeon was consulted and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan was requested. The MRI revealed a long, linear orbital foreign body extending from the left orbit through the medial part of the temporal lobe up to the brain stem (Figure 2). When confronted with the MRI report, the patient’s mother continued to deny any injury with a sharp object. Based on the general condition of the patient, absence of neurological deficits and radiological findings, the neurosurgeon did not recommend an angiography.
