Because it is a CASE STUDY, an “ABSTRACT” of this article is NOT available.
Although I’d love to see it, I wasn’t willing to PAY for the whole Case Study.
I managed to find a tiny snippet of info about the case, and one IMAGE, on the Internet.
And THAT is what is currently posted here.

Intracranial Penetration of a TASER Dart
Tausif-Ur Rehman, MD; Howard Yonas, MD; and Jonathan Marinaro, MD.
(That’s IT! That is ALL that comes up unless you BUY
this American Journal of Emergency Medicine article!)
Here is the info snippet and IMAGE I managed to find on the Interent:
A 16-year-old boy was shot in the face with a Taser while resisting arrest.
One of the darts went through his skull and poked into his brain just a little bit.
That’s all I’ve got right now.
But, CLEARLY, that can’t be GOOD!
