Abstract

Burns in infants are rare. The majority of neonatal burns occur in the hospital setting. The immaturity of their immune system, their fragile and thin skin, the difficulties in resuscitation, the engraftment paucity limited by donor sites and long- term complications, make taking care of burned newborns extremely difficult. We present the case and a two years follow up of a newborn burned 30 minutes after his birth with a total body surface of 35%, when the hot water bottle used in the hospital accidentally burst. This is a case reported of the earliest iatrogenic burn in a newborn. The newborn was discharged home after 30 days in hospital for resuscitation ,dressings and skin grafting. He was under regular observation for the last two years.
