Although few women sustain thermal injuries during pregnancy, when pregnancy is complicated by thermal injury a clear management scheme plus a team approach is needed to provide optimal care both to the foetus and mother. The clinical course of eight pregnant women treated in our burn unit is presented. The relationship between the burn area, gestational age at treatment and prognosis is analysed. Active surgical treatment is advocated.
