LEAL, Jefferson Luiz Figueiredo et al. Facial penetrating injuries: a case report and review of the literature. Rev. cir. traumatol. buco-maxilo-fac. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.2, pp. 43-46. ISSN 1808-5210.

Penetrating injuries to the face and skull have high morbidity among victims of violence and the number of cases has been increasing. The interpretation of the trauma mechanism by the medical team together with the legal professionals is important as it can provide insightful information on the nature of the aggression, whether accidental or homicidal. This paper discusses a case of violence with trauma to the face caused by a perforating object associated with strangulation.

Palavras-chave : asphyxia; violence; death.
