Abstract

Calvarial burns involving the brain (Class IV) are reported to be rare. They represent a treatment challenge. Wound coverage can be accomplished with serial debridement of bone and grafting over granulating tissue, local flaps and free tissue transfer. The former techniques are often not feasible in the young infant. We present a successful case of a six-week-old female patient affected of full thickness burns involving the skull and brain. The bone, dura mater and superficial brain were debrided and the defect covered with AlloDerm® and split thickness grafts. The area engrafted completely and no complications or CSF leak occurred. An acellular human allogeneic dermis (AlloDerm®) can be successfully used to replace dura mater in burn patients.
