摘要Foreign bodies in soft tissues are commonly encountered in daily orthopaedic practice. While most of the metals and glass foreign bodies can be detected by plain radiograph, organic substances such as wood and vegetative materials are radiolucent. Unfortunately, these radiolucent foreign bodies are usually more prone to cause an inflammatory reaction and infection. The detection can be even more difficult in cases of multiple foreign bodies and in penetrating injuries with small innocuous skin wounds. Ultrasonography is a sensitive and reliable investigation for detection of foreign bodies in soft tissue. We present a case of penetration injury to thumb with residual radiolucent foreign bodies and demonstrate the proper role of ultrasonography in the management of foreign bodies in soft tissues.
