Penetrating neck injury is a relatively uncommon type of traumatic injury that has potential for significant morbidity and mortality. Therefore, a patient with a penetrating neck injury must be examined promptly and treated urgently; this is especially important because spinal cord injury can cause variable motor and sensory deficits with loss of the sympathetic tone, which can lead to neurogenic shock and death. In this article, we describe a case of stabbing neck injury with complete spinal cord transection and neurogenic shock, and we review the relevant literature.
