Abstract Traumatic pancreaticoduodenal lesions are rare, often involve a challenging management, and have high rates of morbidity and mortality. A 43-year-old male patient committed a suicidal attempt by shooting an arrow with a crossbow into his upper abdomen. He was successfully treated with cautious multidisciplinary approach. Crossbow lesions demonstrate low kinetics. Sharp tips of arrows result in localized damage, likely to involve several organs. Pancreatic lesions are of particular interest because of their difficult surgery. Surgical exploration and drainage can allow an efficient management of pancreatic penetrating lesions, even in the presence of a complete pancreatic duct disruption.
