Formatted Abstract/Summary
Acute, severe exfoliative, and necrotizing diseases of skin and underlying structures may cause signifi cant morbidity in the
affl icted patient. The problems associated with these diseases, such as wound infection, sepsis, adequate nutrition, and pain, are similar to those seen in patients with major burns. Burn centers provide expertise in the treatment and management of
critically ill patients with skin loss from all causes, not solely from thermal injury. This chapter describes the pathophysiological
processes of severe exfoliative skin disorders, their diagnosis, and the specialized treatment offered by burn units.
