Head wounds caused by firearms in newborns are an under-studied phenomenon in Latin America due to either the low frequency of such events or inadequate documentation. Nonetheless, a progressive increase is noted, with different frequencies reported for different geographic areas. We present the case of a 28-day-old newborn who suffered traumatic brain injury from a gunshot wound stemming from urban violence. This is one of the youngest patients reported with this type of head trauma in the literature.
