Abstract

The pathophysiological changes in a burn patient can at times manifest as severe complications, the management of which can be extremely challenging to the burn surgeon. A case report of an adult male with burns (18% total body surface area) who developed an acute unexpected thrombocytopenia crisis(2 x 10(9) l(-1)) on day 3 followed by disseminated intravascular coagulation is presented. The various etiological factors and possible mechanisms leading to thrombocytopenia in burns are discussed. Minor burns may present acute major complications in the presence of other thrombocytopenic factorslike trauma and sepsis and thrombocytopenia by it self can be a good indicator of sub-clinical infection.
