    ABSTRACT: Penetrating injuries other than gunshot wounds or low-velocity wounds to the head are extremely rare. We report the case of a 19 year old male who sustained a penetrating craniocerebral trauma following a road traffic accident. Noncontrast CT scan revealed three foreign bodies embedded in left frontal lobe, which on surgery turned out to be human teeth. Mechanism of injury seems to share characteristics of low velocity projectiles. The survey of management pattern of these injuries showed a general agreement about CT scan, antibiotics and anticonvulsants. The prompt management resulted in an excellent outcome. We discuss the management of this unusual case reviewing the current literature on craniocerebral injuries caused by similar objects.
