Abstract

An unusual case of penetrating head injury by rearview mirror is reported. The case demonstrates an important mechanical principle that when a relatively small impact is applied over a small area, it is converted to a large force with potential to cause substantial tissue damage. At 1-year followup the patient showed no complications, following craniotomy and removal of the foreign body.
