Sažetak
A case of a 9-year-old boy with a transorbital toy-arrow injury to the brain is presented. At admission he was in coma (Glasgow Coma Scale of 6) with right hemiparesis and had a cmpletely prolapsed left eye. Computerized tomography revealed intracranial haemorrhage and fracture of the orbital wall, which were treated conservatively. His left eye was enucleated due to massive injury. At the 6-month check-up the boy still show neurological signs of latent right hemiparesis. Disturbances, mostly cognitive, were noted on his psychological test. A survey of the literature reveals no report of this nature in the paediatric age group. The necessity of continuous monitoring of new environmental risks as they occur, and the requirement for the prevention of recreational brain injuries in children, is stressed.
