NF0A.3/XX Post traumatic wound infection, not elsewhere classified



Post traumatic wound infections are caused by direct contamination of a wound with bacteria from the environment. This may occur through contact with contaminated objects, or due to direct contact with a person or animal carrying the bacteria. Infections may also occur due to a lack of proper wound care, or if the wound is exposed to dirt or debris.


Post traumatic wound infections may be diagnosed through physical examination and culture of the wound, as well as through blood tests to check for any signs of infection. The wound may also be examined under a microscope to identify the type of bacteria that is causing the infection.

Differential diagnosis

Post traumatic wound infections may be confused with other types of wound infections, such as those caused by fungi or viruses. It is important to differentiate between these in order to provide the most effective treatment.


The main treatment for post traumatic wound infections is antibiotics, which can be taken orally or applied directly to the wound. It is also important to keep the wound clean and free from debris in order to prevent further contamination. The wound should also be dressed regularly in order to promote healing.


The prognosis for post traumatic wound infections is usually good, as long as the infection is treated promptly and appropriately. It is important to follow up with regular checkups after the infection has cleared in order to monitor for any signs of recurrence.
