Özet

Esophageal and laryngeal injuries due to ballistic injuries are seldom encountered. Ballistic external neck traumas generally result in death. Incidence of external penetrant neck injuries may vary between 1/5000-137000 patients among emergency service referrals. Vascular injuries, esophagus-hypopharynx perforations, laryngotracheal injuries, bony fractures, and segmentations may be encountered in external neck traumas. Here we report a 27-year-old male patient who was referred to our emergency department and presented with hyoid bone fracture, multiple mandibular fractures, and hypopharynx perforation due to a ballistic external neck injury.
