ABSTRACT: Purpura fulminans can result in significant full-thickness wounds, posing a challenge in the pediatric population, given the paucity of donor sites for reconstruction. The authors present the case of an 11-month-old patient for whom a split-thickness skin allograft (TheraSkin) was successfully implemented as a temporizing measure for a large leg wound.
