Clinical and radiological diagnosis was made, with loss of skin, subcutaneous cellular tissue and fracture of 4th and 5th metacarpal, surgical procedure was applied. It evolved unfavorably with deep sepsis, loss of extensor tendons and bone exposure, it was decided to start treatment with (HP) to encourage granulation tissue, 21 days later it was possible to cover the bone structures, it was intervened repairing tendons and cutaneous coverage of the back of the hand with bipediculated graft to the abdomen with favorable evolution, the patient returns to her social and work activity at 10 months.
