Mentions: A 24-year-old man was brought to our emergency department with a knife in his chest (Figure 1, 2). He was completely oriented with mild bleeding in the trauma site. Physical examination revealed HR=130 beats per minute is correct BP=90/60 mmHg, regular breathing, and cold sweating. The patient was urgently rushed to the operating room where thoracotomy was performed and the knife was removed. No organ, not even the lung tissue, was damaged by the knife (tip of the knife touched the descending aorta without entering it and there was scratch on the adventitia of the aorta). He was discharged from the hospital alive after two weeks.
