An extremely rare ease of too gangrene in the presence of a mild post-partum venous thrombosis of the leg is presented. The exact mechanism for the development of this condition is not known. Vigorous treatment in the beginning and a long-standing period, later followed by plastic corrective procedures, could result in satisfactory functional and cosmetic results.

    Gangrene presenting at birth is a rare clinical problem; it results from diminished perfusion of a part of the body, usually the extremities. A variety of aetiological factors may account for this situation. Arterial thrombosis, emboli, trauma, congenital heart disease, sepsis, coagulopathy,...
