The care of children with burns represents a therapeutic dilemma for many practitioners who periodically work with thermally injured patients. In this article, the authors emphasize the pathophysiology of thermal injury with special attention to the burned child. Within this framework, pain control, resuscitation, wound care, and the importance of a "burn care team" are discussed as important factors in the care of these children.
