A Two Year Demographic and Medicolegal Study of Burn Cases in V.M.M.C & Safdarjung Hospital, New Delhi - Original Research Paper

Dr. Deepa Durga Roy, Dr. Anil Kumar Mittal

The etiological factors causing a fatal burn injury are demographically multifarious. In the present study conducted on 300 burn autopsies from Delhi- NCR region, and on cases referred from UP and Haryana, it was deduced that the majority of cases were married Hindu females in the age group of 21-30 years, most of whom suffered the burn injuries at home while allegedly cooking. In majority of the female victims, the burn injury covered 61-90 % of the total body surface area followed by more than 91 % of the total body surface area. In children of the age group 0-5 years, scald burn was the prevalent type of burn injury, where the usual area of distribution was abdomen, the corresponding area of back and both lower limbs.
