Abstract

Although rarely described, it is generally accepted that degloving injuries can successfully be treated by defatting the degloved skin and replacing it with a full-thickness graft. There have been few reports on the outcome of this reconstructive procedure in children. In this report, we describe the use of the VAC system to treat a case of degloving injury to both feet of a 4-year-old boy who was pulled into a luggage belt while standing on it.
