Abstract

Subcutaneous injection of petroleum may produce symptoms such as irritation, mild myonecrosis, and necrotizing fasciitis. So far, no studies have been found on self-injection of oil in children due to curiosity. Management of these patients is controversial. We report a case with self-injection of petroleum in soft tissue of left forearm due to curiosity. Management of patient with soft tissue injection consists of hospitalization, hydration, elevation of affected extremity and intravenous antibiotics. In case of complications surgical drainage or debridement is recommended.
