Degloving injuries are frequently seen in emergency departments. However, closed degloving injuries are quite rare and easily missed. A case of closed degloving injury complicated with traumatic paraplegia in a 47-year old man is presented. A different type of mechanism of injury, presence of associated injuries, and initial surgery to the spinal fracture with conservative surgery to the degloved skin made his management quite complicated. Surgeons who deal with trauma patients should keep in their mind the closed degloving injury, and its possible difficult management.
