Lead is a soft-heavy metal with silver-bluish white color, and it has no physiological features in the body. However, it can cause acute or chronic lead poisoning depending on the body lead level. Lead intake may occur in different ways such as inhalation or ingestion. In the presented case chronic lead poisoning developed due to a relatively rare cause and mechanism; lead shots, located in the facial soft tissue as a result of shotgun injury to the face 8 years ago, caused chronic lead poisoning. The patient was treated with EDTA for poisoning and augmentation with Alloderm dermal graft for the facial soft tissue defect.
