Extravasation injury refers to leakage of corrosive liquids from veins, resulting in tissue damage. The authors report on a case of extravasation injury to the left hand after administration of fluid to the antecubital area in a patient with brain damage. In order to minimize the effects of extravasation injury, rapid diagnosis and management are needed. In patients with stiffness, pressure sores can develop requiring more careful management by the medical staff.
Key Words: Extravasation of diagnostic and therapeutic materials, Vegetative state, Vancomycin, Hand, Pressure ulcer
