In multiple digital amputations, it is not always possible to replant the same amputated part. In these cases, heterotopic digital replantation is a suitable option in terms of cosmetic and functional outcomes. In our report, we described a heterotopic digital replantation in an 18-month-old male child who had multiple digital amputation as a result of placing his hand in the ventilator. Heterotopic replantation is an important method that should be kept in mind in multiple finger amputations which can enable a good cosmetic and functional result, especially in cases where the stump of the amputated finger is not suitable/veya convenient.
