Abstract

Crushing burn injury on the hand is relatively rare these days. Still, the effect of the combined thermal and press damage is very severe, and, therefore, the deformity or disability of the hand is often the consequence of the accident. Early aggressive debridement or fasciotomy is preferred for the treatment after admission. We present an extremely severe burn case: the patient has had a full-thickness third-degree hot crushing injury on the hand with all dermal elements, muscles, and tendons destroyed.
