Abstract

Hand burns, in particular, are one of the leading causes of hand injury in children and can result in significant impairment of hand function. Appropriate initial management of hand burns in children is imperative to optimize function and minimize long-term scarring, and it is for this reason that the American Burn Association advocates referral of pediatric hand burns to a verified burn center.
