The US senator and presidential candidate picked up the injury from a glass shower door.
Bernie Sanders has been treated at a walk-in clinic for a minor injury while campaigning for the Democratic nomination for the US presidency.
Campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told reporters that Mr Sanders cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door in South Carolina on Friday and went to a walk-in clinic.
She said the 77-year-old senator received a half-dozen stitches and was given a “clean bill of health”.
