Abstract

Fishhook injuries are most commonly seen among adult and adolescent anglers. However, children can also be injured by fishhooks. We present the case of an 11-year-old boy with an eyelid fishhook injury that was successfully managed in the emergency department. We review a variety of procedures that can be used to remove embedded fishhooks, including the suitability, advantages, and disadvantages of each method.
