BACKGROUND
This study was conducted to assess the epidemiology of burn and lethal area of fifty percentage (LA50) in children in Shiraz, Southern Iran.
METHODS
In this retrospective cross-sectional study, 619 hospitalized burn children from burn centers affiliated to Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran from 2012 to 2016 were enrolled. Demographic characteristics of pa-tients such as age, gender, place and cause of burn, and morality rate were evaluated. LA50 was measured using Probit analysis.
RESULTS
The mean age of patients was 4.4±3.4 years. The mortality rate in burn pa-tients was 8.7% and LA50 of total body surface area (TBSA%) ranged from 40.1% in 2012 to 68.3% in 2016. Although the number of male burn patients (65%) was more than females (35%), the mortality rate in females was more than males (11.4% vs. 7.2%). Scald and flame were the most common causes of burn.
CONCLUSION The findings in our burn center comparing burn patients to developed coun-tries showed that LA50 and survival rate were lower denoting to an urgent necessity to promote current policies in burn care and prevention and to de-crease the mortality rate too.
