Abstract:

Injections of calcium chloride bring about necrosis that may lead to disability or even death. Based on the countrys clinical statistics, in the last 11 years, out of 32 improperly injected patiends, 7 died. However, data on emergency treatments for nectrotic tissue due to extravascular injections of calcium chloride is very scarce. This motivated the authors to report the three cases discussed in the report.
