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.

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.
