Abstract

Paediatric firearm injuries in the UK are uncommon. We present two children with BB-gun pellets in the parapharyngeal space who were managed conservatively and remained asymptomatic 6 months after the gunshot injury. The management of asymptomatic firearm injuries in children is discussed and a literature review included.
