ABSTRACT

Background: Traumatic inguinal lesions in children are relatively unusual and those caused by impalement are less common. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the clinical course of two similar cases.
Clinical cases: A 13-year-old male and a 7-year-old female are presented in this report. During an accidental fall, they sustained an inguinal wound. In the emergency room, a wooden stake and a metallic bar were seen in the inguinal region. The surgical procedure shows absence of vascular, neurological, visceral and testicular damage. Both wounds caused by foreign bodies were subcutaneous and removed without complications.
Conclusions: These types of accidents are uncommon and the absence of damage is the most relevant issue.


Key words: Impalement, pelvic trauma, inguinal canal.
