Unexpected hidden knife blade in the chest wall: A rare case report

Author(s): Dr. Mezhuneituo Raleng, Dr. Anant Prakash Pore and Dr. RS Dahiya
Abstract: We report a 20-year-old boy presenting in OPD, after two and half month’s history of assault and stab wound in left axilla with complaint of weakness and tingling in the left little and ring fingers. A knife blade retained in his chest wall was initially missed in emergency department. This case reminds us that, careful examination on all trauma patients is mandatory, especially those with penetrating injuries. Lack of apparent sign and symptoms, and a seemingly stable patient should not be an excuse for stopping further necessary assessment.
