Free flap reconstruction in infants is extremely rare. A seven-and-a-half-month-old male infant sustained an extensive soft tissue defect on his left knee caused by extravasation of an intraosseous arterenol infusion. A free latissimus dorsi flap was successfully performed for soft tissue reconstruction. Indications, advantages, and outcome of the procedure are discussed.
