Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Circulating hairs or threads may cause hair-thread tourniquet syndrome in babies and mentally retarded individuals. Although it is mostly seen in the fingers and toes, it can be seen in the penis, clitoris, and labium and uvula. It may result in loss of the limb if it’s not recognized early and is not treated correctly. In this study, the case of the second toe of the left foot was presented. Eight month old boy presented with complaints of restlessness and crying for 2 days. Physical examination revealed a constrictive band surrounding the proximal phalanx second toe of the left foot. There was no evidence of child abuse from the family history. It is recommended to make a longitudinal deep incision where there is coiling of the finger. Wrapped hair thread were removed and treated with a small and deep incision dorsally under local anesthesia as described by Serrour. Amoxicillin clavulanic acid was given orally as antibiotic. The wound was healed without any problem by dressing with antibiotic creams for 10 days. In conclusion, it is important to keep this syndrome in mind in patients presenting with the mentioned complaints, in terms of diagnosis and recovery of limb with early treatment.
