Rights and Permissions

Foreign bodies inside the cervical spinal canal causing injury to spinal cord are seen very rarely. Very few cases of glass fragments in the cervical spinal canal were reported till date. In this report, a 17-year-old boy, who was accidentally injured by a glass piece, which penetrated into the cervical spinal cord, was operated upon and, he recovered dramatically. This case report is to emphasize the morbidity caused by small foreign bodies accidentally introduced by trivial injuries.
