Melbourne: Doctors from Germany have removed a pencil from a man's head after it got stuck there 15 years back. According to Aachen University Hospital, the 24-year-old man from Afghanistan started seeking for help in 2011, after suffering from headaches, constant colds and worsening vision in one eye for years, a daily reported.

When doctors looked at the CT scan, they discovered that a 10-centimetre pencil was lodged from his sinus to pharynx and injured his right eye socket.
