Facial impalement in childhood is very rare. In most cases, it is caused by accident. We present two young patients who suffered a facial impalement injury and were treated in the interdisciplinary emergency room of the University Hospital Bonn, Germany. The degree of injury could not be completely determined during the first examination. Serious complications could be excluded after examination via computed tomography (CT) and surgical exploration. The indication to use CT or magnetic resonance imaging in childhood has to be considered in order to obtain full and exact information about the extent of injury.
