Abstract: We report a case of a girl who was assaulted by her brother with a large stainless steel spoon which was found penetrating the mastoid cortex. There were no signs of intracranial bleeding. CT brain revealed the metallic part of the spoon piecing the mastoid cortex and compressing the sigmoid sinus. Under general anaesthesia spoon was removed in the operation theatre. Post operatively recovery was uneventful.
