Intraorbital foreign bodies are relatively rare and are often associated with vision threatening complications. Their clinical presentation and treatment outcome is variable depending on the size and composition of the foreign body. Metallic and inert substances like glass and plastic are relatively well tolerated but organic foreign bodies like wood is poorly tolerated and may lead to severe inflammatory reaction and secondary infection needing prompt surgical intervention. Although identification and removal of wooden foreign bodies is very difficult, we report this case for its unusual presentation, where a large intraorbital wooden foreign body presented with a disfigured scar of right upper eye lid, two years after road traffic accident. The foreign body was removed successfully without any complications.
