Abstract:Background: In India, Burns is second most common cause of accidental injuries. Only limited studies have evaluated the scenario of accidental burn in rural India. Aim: To evaluate prospectively accidental burns in a hospital situated in a rural part of central India. Study design: The consecutive 300 cases of accidental burns admitted in our hospital were analyzed prospectively to review the scenario of accidental burn over a period of 3 years. Results: The study revealed female (68.81%) predominance with the female to male ratio of 2.2:1. Most of the victims of burn were between the ages of 21 to 30 years. Married (69%) outnumbered unmarried. Accidental burns were predominantly in young adult females.The accidents due to domestic burns were common among both domestic & non-domestic burns. Most of the accident due to burns sustained inside the kitchen or usually occurred at the time of working in the kitchen. Conclusion: considering the increase in the incidence of accidental burns in rural areas, government and other social organizations need to put an effort into running the prevention and education programs against burn injuries..
