The severity of injuries depend on the type of air gun used, distance at which it is fired and the anatomic site at which the pallet hits. This article describes a case involving a girl who was accidentally hit by an air gun pallet. The treatment strategy along with review of literature on short and long term complications of air gun injuries is discussed.
