Treatment for third degree burns exceeding 90% of the BSA remains a very difficult problem. Only a few papers concerning the successful treatment of such patients have been published and only eight survivors have been reported. They are documented exclusively in the Chinese medical literature1–5. In the present chapter, we report two more cases. They were injured by the explosion of a boiler in May 1981.
