Laceration. Close-up of a laceration above the eye of a five year old boy. A laceration is a torn, irregular wound (as opposed to an incision, which is a straight cut). Treatment involves cleaning and dressing the area to prevent infection. Stitches may be required to hold the sides of the wound together while it heals.
