A 55-year-old man with multiple pellet injuries was brought to the Emergency room. In his physical examination, there were multiple wounds in face, neck, shoulders, arms, thorax and upper abdomen. The therapeutic options include pericardial drainage, conservative treatment, and surgical removal of the pellet. But, he was successfully managed with conservative medical treatment. This case showed that the treatment of heart injuries due to shotgun pellet should be individualized.
