Figure 1: (a) Axial CT scans showing a low density lesion in the left frontal lobe surrounded by perifocal edema; (b) The coronal CT bone window image showing a breach in the orbital wall in close proximity to the low density image in the frontal lobe. This formed the entry point of the penetrating foreign body. Signifi cant periorbital edema is seen on the axial image; (c) Enhanced MR image done after one month of injury showing a well-formed abscess with thick defi ned walls situated close to the foreign body. The latter is also surrounded by enhancing abscess capsule; (d) The bamboo stick surrounded by the granulation tissue of the abscess was completely resected
