Abstract

An epidemiological study was performed in the Burns and Reconstructive Surgery Centre in Casablanca University Hospital (Morocco). A one-hundred patient cohort was studied, with adults accounting for 55% of the cases; the average age was 20 years. Females represented 61% of the cohort. More than 50% of the patients were seen first in regional hospitals. The average time before healing was 7 months and 11 days, and minor and major burn scarring was frequent. The clinical epidemiology is described for each topographical body part and the results are compared with those in the literature. Various therapeutic approaches, using medical and surgical treatment, were followed. It is shown that prevention is still the best approach in the treatment of burns sequelae.
