Some cases of penetrating trauma to the face can result in asymptomatic injuries, especially vascular trauma. This paper reports the case of a young patient with penetrating facial trauma and a vascular injury diagnosed using an imaging exam. Endovascular treatment was performed involving embolization of the left maxillary artery.
