Published on

CT pictorial depiction of a "lucky' bullet in right infratemporal fossa of a 32-year old male. Case worked up in 2004 in Seychelles. The bullet missed all major arteries (IC / EC) and other vital structures. After weighing all pros and cons, it was decided that trying to remove the bullet would carry significant likelihood of morbidity and possibly mortality. Patient made an uneventful recovery with conservative treatment.
