Foreign body in left buttock

7 year old male. Had an accident whereby a piece of wood penetrated into his left buttock and was pulled out immediately by his grandmother. Slight swelling was seen and wound has not healed for over a month. Ultrasound revealed a long linear echogenic object, with posterior shadowing, measuring about 4.38cm in length and 0.82cm in width.
