Abstract

Anhydrous ammonia, a widespread industrial chemical, can cause severe inhalation and ophthalmic injuries, as well as cutaneous burns. We present five patients with ammonia injury treated at our burn center after an explosion in a warehouse. The challenges inherent in managing the pulmonary complications of this injury are emphasized.
