We report a case of orbitocranial wooden foreign body, piercing through roof of orbit, frontal sinus and frontal lobe and reaching up to corpus callosum. It was, missed at the time of injury by treating surgeon and removed by us after five months. Meticulous exploration of wound and radiological imaging study of orbital injuries is mandatory at the time of injury as they complement each other in the diagnosis. Unlike metal foreign bodies that are easily diagnosed on radiological imaging, intraorbital wooden foreign bodies are often missed on cursory clinical evaluation and radiodiagnosis. This may result into significant ocular morbidity at a later date.
