Volkan Burak Taban [1]


Vaginal foreign bodies may be represented in various group of patients with various ways. A fifteen-year-old female patient admitted to emergency department with the complaint of left femoral injury due to gunshot. In detailed examination, bullet was found in her vagina and removed surgically. Determination of the exit hole is as important as entrance hole in gunshot injuries, though probable harm or neighboring to vital structures. Bullet can be found in an unexpected area without any direct association with the injury site. To reveal the localization of the foreign body and its surgical remove is important to prevent further complications. Here we report a case of vaginal foreign body that reached the vagina indirectly from femoral region.
