1/4. Genital ulcer caused by human bite to the penis.

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Human bite injuries, while less frequent than cat or dog bites, usually stem from aggressive behavior, sports, or sexual activity. It has been thought that human bites have a higher rate of infection than animal bites, but this view is likely skewed because of the frequency of closed fist injuries presenting to emergency rooms. Human bites to the genitalia also occur, but are not often reported because of embarrassment. GOAL OF THE STUDY: We report a genital ulceration after a human bite to the penis and review appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic maneuvers. STUDY DESIGN: This article reports the development of a severe genital ulcer associated with a human bite to the penis secondarily infected, as verified by culture, with an oral flora organism eikenella corrodens. RESULTS: The genital ulceration healed after appropriate antibiotic therapy. CONCLUSIONS: Treatment of human bites focuses on obtaining an accurate history and performing a salient physical examination, as well as early irrigation and debridement. Transmission of communicable disease should be considered as a possible consequence. Prophylactic antibiotic treatment and primary closure of wounds continue to be areas of controversy.

2/4. Penile ulcer from traumatic orogenital contact.

    Human bite injuries, although less frequent than animal bites, usually stem from aggressive behavior, sports participation, or sexual activity. Human genital bites and similar traumatic events also occur, but are infrequently reported because of embarrassment. A genital ulceration following mild trauma during oral-genital contact is reported and appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic interventions reviewed. The ulcer was infected, as verified by culture, with an aggressive oral flora organism, eikenella corrodens. The genital ulceration healed following appropriate antibiotic therapy. Treatment of human bites focuses on obtaining an accurate history and salient physical examination, as well as performing early irrigation and debridement. Prophylactic antibiotic treatment and primary closure of bite wounds remain areas of controversy. Because there is an inherent high risk of infection, genital human bite wounds (and similar traumatic events related to orogenital contact) should be managed with prophylactic antibiotic administration.

3/4. Immediate reconstruction of the helical rim after bite injury using the posterior auricular flap.

    A local flap of auriculomastoid skin and subcutaneous tissue, based on the posterior auricular artery, has been used to reconstruct as a primary procedure defects of the helical rim following animal and human bites. The principles of the reconstruction and three illustrative case reports are presented.

4/4. Good bite mark evidence: a case report.

    Bite mark analysis is unquestionably the most difficult, and contentious, work undertaken by forensic odontologists. Each injury must be assessed to determine if it was made by human or animal teeth, if the quality of the evidence allows presentation to a Court of Law, and if the pattern can be reasonably compared to a suspect dentition. Many injuries examined by forensic odontologists do not meet these criteria. A case is presented in which a Victim Statement could be corroborated, with evidence of good probative value.
