This paper is based upon observations made during the Yom Kippur War at the Plastic Surgery Ward in the Soroka Medical Center, Beer Sheva. At the outbreak of hostilities on October 6, 1973, the Plastic Surgery Ward was expanded and reorganized to take care of wounded soldiers, mainly burned patients who were injured in tank warfare. More than 50 soldiers were admitted during the first two weeks of war, most of them with face and hand burns. The observations are limited here to reactions immediately after injury and several months thereafter.
