Chemical burn under pneumatic tourniquet caused by povidone-iodine is an iatrogenic injury and is rarely reported in the literature. It is even rarer in paediatric cases. We report a case of 2-year-old female patient who underwent excision and reconstruction of bilateral radial polydactylies. She was found with chemical burns over posterior aspect of both arms later. These wounds healed secondarily within 4 weeks. This morbidity is relatively under-recognised. Special attention should be paid to paediatric patients, whose skins are more delicate and vulnerable.
