Abstract

Human bite injuries, as innocuous as they may initially appear, may result in severe impairment. With a better understanding of the anatomy, microbiology, mechanism of injury, and clinical presentation, early diagnosis and the institution of appropriate therapy may minimize the morbidity commonly associated with human bite infections of the hand.
