Figure 0001: Chest X-ray showing metallic bar

Mentions: The patient's oxygen saturation was maintained by a 5-liter oxygen face mask, and he was resuscitated with intravenous fluid through two large bore cannulas. Chest x-ray [Figure 1] was done, which showed a metallic rod traversing the chest cavity from right basal to left apical region through the mediastinum, with no obvious fracture of bone, pneumothorax or hemothorax, no widening of mediastinum and no cardiomegaly. Blood work-up showed no significant changes.
