Abstract

Hair Tourniquet Syndrome is a rare clinical phenomenon that involves hair, thread, or similar material which wrapped tightly around an appendage and result in many complications as pain, injury, and lead to loss of the appendage. We have witnessed A 2-months-old boy complaining of 4th right toe swelling and redness for 5 days, not improved with local antibiotics, associated with inconsolable crying, the parents denied any history of infection, trauma, similar condition, vitals were within normal, sterile surgical exploration was done under local anesthesia and hair thread was successfully removed. Hair Tourniquet Syndrome should be considered when a swollen appendage or swollen part of genitalia is seen. Diagnosis is based mainly on detailed history and clinical examination and if the diagnosis has been confirmed, early release of constriction will help to prevent further damage.

Keywords: Hair Tourniquet; Hair-thread tourniquet syndrome; Fingers; Infants.
