The goal in any reconstruction of soft tissue defects is to restore the function with minimum morbidity and at the same time as esthetic as possible. The lower leg reconstruction algorithm is a subject of debate and the ideal approach has not yet been established. For a long time, the free transfer tissue was the main option. During the last 20 years, with more understanding of local vascularity, the pedicle perforator flaps gained popularity mainly because they have minimal donor-site morbidity, replace the lost tissue with similar tissue coverage and also have a great versatility.   We present a case with an unusual mechanism of trauma, a bear bite with a severe avulsion injury cumulated with a high potential for infection, which was reconstructed using a propeller flap.
