Abstract

Foreign body injuries are common in pediatric age. However, the situation in which a hair strand can act as a foreign body is rare, with few clinical cases being reported. It is known as cutaneous pili migrans the injury caused by a hair that is in the epidermis and it is characterised by being linear, dark and many times serpiginous, with an erythematous surface, for which it is frequently confused with other pathologies such as larva migrans or scabies. We report a case of a 3-year-old girl who presented an injury on foot?s sole which has recently appeared and with asymptomatic clinical course.
