• High-pressure petroleum injection injuries are best known in the distal part of the upper extremity. A recent Medlars search revealed several articles dealing with this type of injury in the hands and wrists, but, as yet, there have been no publications of this type of trauma to the head and neck region. A 35-year-old farmer sustained a high-pressure petroleum injection injury to the lower part of the left cheek and neck. This case might serve as a guide for management of similar cases in the future.
