Introduction Terror-related injuries have become a threat for populations all over the world. A lot of theories and papers were published as principles for MCI management. We decided to take some of these principles and see if they are evidence based on the data of the terror MCI's in Israel 1/2000–12/2005, National Trauma Registry.

Methods Analysis of national trauma registry was published data from October 2000 to December 2005.

Results 1661 patients were recorded in the Israeli national trauma registry due to terror-related injury and 55 033 due to other trauma between 1 October, 2000 and 30 June, 2003. 55% between the ages of 15 and 29 years compared to 22% in this age group among the population injured by other (non terror) forms of trauma. (1) Arrival and hospitalisation patterns do severe injuries arrive first? (2) Triage: has triage change due to new mechanisms of penetrating injuries of shrapnel nails and bolts included in explosives? (3) Differences in resource consumption by terror casualties.

Conclusions Some theories and papers were published as principles for MCI management are not match the evidence data based.
