A 6-year-old child visited our institute with a history of foreign body that stuck in her eye. Computed
Tomography (CT) scan report revealed hypodensity embedded in the left lateral orbital wall, abutting and
compressing the globe of the left eye with displaced comminuted fracture. We performed a procedure of
removal of foreign body from the eye, a procedure that was performed with great difficulty and precision
given the sensitivity. On the postoperative day, nil foreign-body was noted in CT scan and there was
chemosis and full eyeball movement. The cornea was clear, anterior chamber quiet, the pupil normally
reactive. Dilated fundoscopy was normal.
Key Message: We report here a challenging case of a large intraorbital wooden foreign body in the left
orbit of a child perforat the lateral wall of the left orbit, which on surgical removal the entire eyeball was
found intact and normal. The patient’s injury could be considered novel as it was unseen at the hospital and
post operatively the anterior and posterior segment was found to be normal. This explain the rarity of the
case and hence it hit our inquisitiveness.
