Gunshot bullet embolisation in the middle cerebral artery.


Bullet embolism (BE) is a rare phenomenon following a gunshot wound. A middle cerebral artery BE was detected in a 36-year-old male patient following a perforating left thoracic gunshot wound without obvious cranial injury. This paper discusses a case of BE in the cranial circulation in conjunction with a review of the relevant literature.
