Özet

The human bites generally have been came across after the situation as fighting, aggression, murder, sports competitions and child abuse. Hands and wrists are the most common areas that human bites have seen. Our case was seen first time when 65 aged woman treating for diabetes mellitus in our endocrinology service consultated us with a neglected open wound that occurred after she put on her hands second finger's proximal phalanx to her relative's mouth to keep open duration of epileptic attack before 45 days. In this case we try to explain that the wrong intervention in epileptic attack and delaying treatment of infections of human bites can be resulted with limb missing.
