The rehabilitation and reconstruction of patients who survive large burns is an arduous task. To facilitate it we have devised an inventory form to accurately record the somatic abnormalities caused by burns and also the severity and location of burns. This form was used in the assessment of 25 pediatric patients with massive burns. It was found to be a very useful tool that allowed the identification of more specific functional and esthetic deformities than is possible with currently available forms. It also served as a template for the systematic planning of reconstructive procedures.
