Abstract

Crocodile bites are one of the most powerful bites of any creature. Bite wounds are usually deep, with severe tissue damage, frequently contaminated with unusual microorganisms, and are difficult to treat. This case report describes the treatment of a middle-aged man admitted after a crocodile attack to the left distal end of humerus, elbow and proximal forearm. He was successfully treated with empirical broad-spectrum antibiotics and repeated wound debridement. The patient was discharged after nine days of intensive care at a level 1 trauma unit, good outcomes were seen eight months later.
