Nonmissile penetrating brain injuries are exceedingly uncommon among civilian population and are most often associated with inflicted injury. They show specific characteristics different from that of missile wounds. In this article, we describe a rare case of a 22-month-old child who experienced accidental penetrating head trauma caused by a crossbow. We document neuroimaging studies and review the management concerning this pathology. To our knowledge, this is the youngest survived case of penetrating brain injury by a crossbow with such radiological findings reported in the literature.
