Abstract

Bite wounds are a common reason for patients to seek medical attention. Proper wound evaluation and appropriate antimicrobial therapies are the cornerstones of managing these wounds, particularly when they are human associated. In this article, we describe the case of a pediatric patient who sustained a facial laceration from a human bite and its complications.
