Abstract
Introduction: Penetrating pelvic trauma is rare and presents as one of the most difficult challenges to trauma surgeons.
Case Report: We present an unusual case of a 23-year-old male suffering a penetrating pelvic trauma by a projected metal wire. The wire was found in intrapelvic location, caused no internal organs injury and was safely removed using a Pfannenstiel extended approach.
Conclusion: Preoperative assessment of foreign body position is mandatory to set-up an efficient surgical procedure. The surgeon must have a profound knowledge of pelvic anatomy in order to choose the best option for the foreign body removal without any iatrogenic lesions.

Keywords: Intrapelvic, Metallic, Removal, Trauma, Wire
