Management of the scrotal trauma caused by an air-compressed gun in a child: A case report

Ugur Uyeturk

Abstract


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, in recent years, there has been a significant increase in the muzzle velocity of these weapons with advances in gas technology. Air gun injuries are frequently presented in the head, neck and thorax region, but injuries in the 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.

Keywords


Air gun; pellet gun injuries; scrotal injury; child.
