Bullet embolism is a rare complication of penetrating vascular trauma that requires a high index of suspicion for timely diagnosis and management. Delays in identification may result in poor early management and subsequent loss of limb or life [1]. There are two types of bullet embolism: arterial and venous. In this report, we discuss a rare case of venous bullet embolus to the right ventricle from the right femoral vein.
