BBC News: “The man who grew back his fingertip”

by James Hubbard, M.D., M.P.H.

I am really not sure what to make of this story, about some special powder helping a fingertip regrow. I know I always tell someone with a cut like that that it will grow back nicely by itself if it does not involve the bone or nail bed, but that one in the video that accompanies the story does look pretty bad.

We’re working on getting a specialist’s comments about this.
