Adequate debridement and flap operations are effective treatment methods for chronic osteomyelitis. Several flap operations have been described for treating chronic osteomyelitis in various regions. We performed anterolateral thigh fasciocutaneous free flap and iliac bone graft for treating posttraumatic chronic osteomyelitis in hand. The result was successful with satisfactory control of osteomyelitis and avoiding amputation of fingers.
