Children exposed to air gun pellets may also have a different clinical picture, from mild tissue damage to life-threatening injury. Although these weapons are known as toys, there has been a significant increase in the muzzle velocity of these weapons with advances in gas technology, recently. Air gun injuries are frequently presented in head, neck and thorax region, but injuries in genitourinary tract are rare in children. Here, we report a 12-year-old boy who was injured by a random shot with an air gun, due to the features of his diagnosis and treatment.
