Glacial acetic acid is a highly dangerous chemical that, in recent years, has been linked to multiple adverse drug reactions in patients.

Therefore, We have reported a case where toes were injured due to chemical burns from glacial acetic acid, but they were successfully healed through long time conservative treatment.
