Cases of survival after a penetrating fi rearm injury to the head are very uncommon. In cases where the bullet does not exit the head, it can be lodged anywhere in the cavities of the skull leading to fatal consequences. This case report examines a rare case of a penetrating fi rearm injury to the face where the victim survived and the bullet was discovered to be lodged at the nasal roof. The victim of this case report is a 25-year-old Somalian lady and the bullet that penetrated her head entered through the right eye laterally and lodged into the midline of the nasal roof. The bullet was successfully removed endoscopically via right nostril without any complications.
