Abstract

Abstract Seventy-three cases of bull horn injury from a predominantly rural population around Allahabad were admitted to our unit between 1966 and 1975. Injury to the deep viscera is uncommon and the possible explanations of this pattern of injury are discussed. The abdomen was the commonest site of injury with prolapse of loops of small intestine in 60 per cent of cases. Management differs from other penetrating abdominal wounds and simple cleansing and careful examination of the bowel is sufficient in those injuries with prolapse of the intestine.
