Free muscle flaps are sometimes raised with skin islands which are vascularized with a perforator of the pedicle. In this case, the skin island used for monitorization of a free latissimus dorsi (LD) flap was raised as a pedicled perforator flap to cover a defect secondary to contracture release 1 year after free tissue transfer. We present a case of a 3-year-old child who presented with a left foot defect that was reconstructed with a musculocutaneous LD flap. One year after initial surgery, a contracture of the great toe was released and reconstructed with a perforator flap harvested from the original musculocutaneous flap.
