Penetrating foreign bodies in neck may be quite challenging to locate in edematous tissue planes and these require urgent surgical exploration. Retrieval of foreign bodies depends upon the size and location of foreign body and the surrounding anatomical structures. We are reporting an unusual case in which a scissor was stabbed into the patient’s neck causing subcutaneous emphysema, hemetemesis and impaction of scissor tip in the cervical vertebra. The foreign body was removed by transverse cervical approach with the help of C-arm.
