Abstract

This case demonstrates the unpredictability of foreign bodies in the face. The retained knife blade eluded detection on two separate examinations. The essential components to making a correct diagnosis of a foreign body following a stabbing to the face include a thorough review of the mechanism of injury, a complete head and neck examination, a high index of suspicion, and plain radiographs of the face.
