Foreign body in wounds can lead to unnecessary and avoidable morbidity to patients following injuries. We present here a rare case of foreign body in a wound, which was discovered incidentally after 22 years. Nonhealing wounds of the soft tissues without infection should always raise the suspicion of foreign body inside the wound.
