Penetrating head trauma: 03 rare cases and literature review.

Abstract Penetrating head trauma (PHT) include all open head injuries with foreign object in the brain. Although less common than closed head trauma, penetrating head trauma carry a worse prognosis. We received three unusual cases of penetrating head injuries whose prognosis was different according to clinical presentation and initial management of the patient. Treatment of penetrating head trauma aims at controlling bleeding, controlling intracranial pressure and preventing infections. Despite the efforts made by national authorities as well as the adequate management in hospitals, penetrating head injuries are still frequent with significant mortality and morbidity.
