Before age of 6 months foreign body injuries by penetrating bodies are very rare and extraordinary form of childhood injuries [1]. When we examine the literature, it is suggested that the childhood penetrating body injuries particularly occurred by the sewing needles should be considered as non-accidental injuries and especially child abuse should be kept in mind. It is suggested that the pediatrician or the emergency doctors who initially examine these patient must be careful [2]. Diagnosis needs multidisciplinary approach [3]. Some other findings in the examination should also be searched to suspect child abuse. These findings can be multiple bruises in different healing age, bone fractures on atypical localizations, burns and there is usually a delay in presentation [4].
