This report describes two cases of self-inflicted penetrating nonprojectile orbitointracranial injury. Suicide attempts caused by these types of injuries are very rare. An understanding of the orbital and intracranial anatomy and the avoidance head turn help to predict potential injury sites. Computed tomography and cerebral angiography were helpful in the treatment of these two cases.
