Crush injury to finger is one of the common traumas in clinical practice. The injured patients often have a ring on their finger. The ring can be removed by non-operative techniques or by cutting the ring off and thus avoiding any long-term consequences. If the ring is not removed, the finger may swell and gangrene could occur. We present an unusual case of gangrene terminal finger due to a ring. The gangrene of this type is rarely reported in literature. The case is presented to stress the importance of removal of any circumferential foreign body on limbs before surgery.
