The most serious dural sinus accident following traumatic brain injury is superior sagittal sinus (SSS) injury. It is usually resulted from depressed skull fracture extends to the midline. We present a traumatic superior sagittal sinus injury triggered by the metal ceiling fan blade with its surgical management. Injuries of the SSS have an increased mortality rate in head injured patients. Metallic ceiling-fan head injury differs from the classic traumatic brain injury concerning the presentation, radiology, management, and outcomes.
