Abstract

Pediatric burns are devastating injuries, physically and emotionally; however, with progressive medical treatment even with the most severe burns, more burn patients are surviving. This leads to the introduction of a new area of medicine including the psychologic rehabilitation requiring the attention of reconstructive surgeons. Successful psychologic rehabilitation depends on a coordinated interdisciplinary burn care team, family, and the school environment, as well as the child.
