Animal bite lesions in the pediatric patient are mainly accounted for by dog bites in 80% to 90% of the cases. They often present a favorable prognosis but serious lesions do account for 5% to 20% of the total incidence. We will present three particular clinical cases which required urgent surgical treatment as well as a review of the current literature to include both medical and surgical treatment methods for this kind of lesion.
