    A retrospective review is presented of 64 patients with infections of the hand requiring admission to hospital. We present an account of the different types of hand infection encountered, together with details of the various aetiologies and microbiological findings where these are available. The management of hand infections is discussed with reference to the patients in our series, and in terms of the general principles involved.
