Penetrating injury to the head is considered a form of severe traumatic brain injury. Although uncommon, most neurosurgical centres would have experienced treating patients with such an injury. Despite the presence of well written guidelines for managing these cases, surgical treatment requires an individualized approach tailored to the situation at hand.
