Penetrating injuries of face are not uncommon. Bullets or pallets may be lodged anywhere in the cavities of skull as a result of firearm injury. Lodgment of a bullet within the orbit through nose is uncommon. An eighteen 18 years old married woman sustained a bullet injury, which entered through lateral wall of the nose and lodged at left orbital apex area. The bullet was removed endoscopically via left nostril without any damage to the eye or disturbance in vision.
