Patients with profound sensorimotor deficits following spinal trauma/post spinal surgery are vulnerable to develop pressure ulceration. Here we present an unusual case of multiple pressure ulcers in an 11-year-old paraplegic child, with histiocytoma of the spine at the T1-T3 level. Although multiplicity of ulcers is not uncommon, this was the first case, in our institute, in which such a large number of pressure ulcers were encountered in a child. Successful management, using a multidisciplinary approach, led to improved quality of life and, at follow-up of more than 1 year, the child has not developed any new pressure ulcers, and neither is there any recurrence.
