Penetrating injury of superior sagittal sinus (SSS) is very rare yet serious which can lead to morbidity and mortality. Complications such as bleeding, thrombosis, and infection are possible and should be anticipated. We report a case of 3-year-old boy with penetrating injury caused by a nail at the middle third of SSS. The patient underwent the surgery for extraction and sinus repair and antibiotic treatment during the hospital stay. He was neurologically intact and recovered completely. Comprehensive treatment of both surgical and medical management is important in achieving the best possible outcome.
