To date, no adverse effects or contraindications have been observed in association with the use of calcium alginate dressing on an exuding wound. This is the first case in the literature in which it is suggested that using a large quantity of calcium alginate dressing could be harmful. The scenario leading to the complication and suggestions to prevent similar conditions in the future are described.
