The study involves two male Negroid adults with tailoring as the occupation working in small scale industrial area of south Eastern, Nigeria who had a minor domestic misunderstanding. In a bid of set tling the rift the two were asked for sometime off to talk to each others privately.However, the two agreed to talk over the issue within themselves; in one of this private meeting the said accused took a pair of scissors in their office while they were talking suddenly stabbed the victim on the lateral aspect of the left neck resulting to torrential bleeding. The victim raised an alarm as he was rushed to a nearby clinic where he was attended by the medical team and discharged. A few minutes later he died. This report tends to portend that all stab wound notwithstanding the anatomical site must be hospitalised and monitored closely by both emergency physicians and traumatic/neurosurgeons for a while before discharge.
