Abstract

We report a case of a bather injured by a swordfish in shallow water off the coast of southern Brazil. The victim suffered multiple injuries from the fish's bill, including a puncture wound of his left knee and the tip of the bill remaining as a foreign body. The victim made a full recovery after field management and conservative care. The potential factors leading to this most unusual attack are discussed.
