ABSTRACT: The most commonly employed instruments of destruction by terrorists worldwide are conventional weapons and explosives. Such attacks are occurring with increasing frequency and ferocity. The effects of bombings and blast injuries are both physically and psychologically devastating. Missile injuries on the head are mostly due to firearms. Atypical missiles may be encountered in case of shrapnel of bomb explosions but rarely because of stones. Here we report case where a stone propelled due to bomb blast and struck the head of a 40 year old female and we found traumatic intracranial stone as foreign object resulting in fatality.
