Non-missile penetrating head injuries are rare but well-known phenomenon among the civilian population. The authors reported a ten year-old boy, who has injured by piece of broken whetstone while watching his father’s work. Brain Computed Tomography (CT) of the patient revealed bone fragments underneath the depressed fracture of the right frontal bone and frontal sinus. The patient was urgently operated; knife whetstone and the bone fragments were removed carefully.
