Abstract

Nicolau syndrome is a rare drug reaction due to intramuscular injection administration that can lead to limb loss or even death. A 3.8-year-old Iranian boy received an intramuscular injection of Benzathine Penicillin. Immediately after injection the child developed lower limb pain and livedoid discolouration and was referred to our department. The patient was diagnosed to develop Nicolau syndrome and fasciotomy carried out due to compartment syndrome. Pharmacologic therapy with Heparin, Cefazolin and Methylprednisolone was initiated. On 18th day, he was discharged, although he was not able to move. Finally, after 6 months of care at home, physiotherapy and Electromyography (EMG) at regular intervals, the child was gradually able to move and his claudication improved. © 2015, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.
