Abstract

Beveling of the calvarial bone is reported in firearm exit wounds and stabbing injuries in forensic literature. Beveling in entry wounds is rare. We report a case of a 27-year-old man who sustained a nonfatal penetrating craniofacial injury due to motorbike brake handle, and completely recovered after conservative management. We describe the characteristic inward as well outward beveling on imaging due the penetrating trajectory of the motorbike break handle.
