Laceration. Close-up of a laceration on the face of a five-year-old boy. In the background is the wheel of a car; the injury could be the result of a road accident. A laceration is a torn, irregular wound (as opposed to an incision, which is a straight cut). Treatment involves cleaning and dressing the area. Stitches may be required to hold the sides of the wound together.
Model release available. Property release not required.
