Penetrating cranionasal injuries are relatively rare, usually occur in young children, and can be caused by a variety of unusual objects. The mortality and disability rates are high without appropriate treatment. We report a penetrating cranionasal injury caused by a bicycle spoke. Some fundamental principles in the diagnosis and treatment of penetration injuries are emphasized from this case and the surrounding literature reviewed.
