Hair-thread tourniquet syndrome (HTTS) is caused by circumferential constriction of an appendage, usually by hair or thread, leading to obstruction of circulation and ischemia. Although not rare, this entity is not discussed extensively in the Dermatology literature. We present a case of HTTS and discuss the demographics and etiology, and review the most current treatment methods.
