Abstract

Facial gunshot is a challenging medico-surgical emergency because of the complex neurovascular structure in the area. We present a patient who sustained a facial gunshot injury, with massive nasal and oral bleeding that resulted in shock. We review the management of gunshot injury to the internal maxillary artery, both in acute and chronic stages. In addition, we describe the clinical course of the rarely occurring Collet-Sicard syndrome, which involves injury to the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th cranial nerves associated with gunshot injury.
