A 14 year old male had gangrene of the leg following snake bite, leaving only 4 cms. skin beyond the level of knee and a thin strip of skin reaching the lower part of leg posteriorly, with an alive muscle deep to it. A below knee amputation was achieved by utilising the thin strip and the muscle to go round the bone stump, supplemented with limited free skin graft. This avoided an above knee amputation.
