    Description
    A 18 year old boy presented with injury by a plant thorn. The thorn entered in stab wound fashion through para plana, falling just short of the retinal surface. The IOFB was removed after PPV and repair of the scleral wound. The image is a still of the intra operative view during vitrectomy.
