Picture of a Hair Tourniquet

Hair tourniquets are a rare cause of persistent infant fussiness. I had seen my first one in the Children’s Hospital of Alabama ED as a resident. This is a picture of the second hair tourniquet I’ve seen. If you look closely, you can see a blonde hair wrapped around three of his toes. There is also a little sock fuzz included. This little guy, presented for his 4 month check up. While in my office, he became extremely fussy. His mother noticed the source of his discomfort as I entered the room. Fortunately, the tourniquet was not tight enough nor on long enough to cause any damage. I used a simple straight probe to break the hair. He was relieved immediately.
