In brief: Frostbite injury

Cold weather injury is most likely known as frostbrite.
It can effect any part of the body but most commonly effects extremities. Treatment is directed at gentle (not rapid) rewarming of the effected part. Observation is subsequently monitored. Pathophysiology involves vascular occlusion and necrosis. Once tissues have demarcated, debridement and reeconstruction is instituted.
