[Treatment of hydrofluoric acid burns on fingers].


The treatment of hydrofluoric acid burns by injection, as it is recommended by many authors, does not give a satisfactory outcome in cases in which the fingers are involved. In these cases the treatment might be dangerous. However good results are seen after early excision of the burned area and covering the defect with split thickness skin grafts. In a case report the typical course and treatment is demonstrated.
