Foreign bodies driven deep into the maxillofacial spaces always represent a challenge for maxillofacial surgeons. The diagnosis of these foreign bodies can be made early through radiographs, ultrasound, CT and MRI. Once diagnosed and localized, these foreign bodies must be surgically removed. We report a rare case of localization of a foreign body in the maxillofacial region following an accidental fall, which arrived at the emergency room of the “San Giovanni di Dio” Hospital in Frattamaggiore.


KEY WORDS: Foreign bodies; Tomography, X-Ray Computed; Cheek
