Caption: Dehiscence (splitting) of wound. Close up of a wound that has reopened on the shin. The wound is weeping and a scab has begun to form at the edges. The scar from the original cut may be seen at the top and at the bottom of the wound. The area around the wound is swollen and red. This injury was originally repaired with steristrips (a type of bandage). It is an incised wound where the skin has been cleanly cut. It may require suturing (stitching) rather than taping the edges together as before.
