A 27 year-old man, who had a penetrating cardiac injury due to a metal fragment was transferred to our hospital. At admission, his vital signs were stable, and his chest film showed a foreign-body-like finding in the heart silhouette. We evaluated the patient with chest computed tomography and echocardiography for further information. Finally, we removed the metal fragment from the left ventricle by using a cardiopulmonary bypass.
