dc.description.abstract Impalement injuries to the head and neck are quite rare, commonly lethal, and vision threatening when involving the orbit. Here, a case of impalement injury involving a steel bar to the neck and left orbit with full visual recovery is presented. The bar was removed, leaving non-displaced fractures of the floor of the left orbit and ethmoid bone. The disinserted left medial rectus was resutured. The perforated upper eyelid was sutured. The patient ended with mild ptosis. en_US
