The gravity of ocular trauma among patients who enter specialized regional burn and trauma centers has not been well addressed.
This survey was undertaken to delineate the epidemiology of ocular burns in patients who are triaged to a regional burn center.
A retrospective review of medical records of patients entering the Washington Regional Burn Center from 1981-1988 was undertaken.
Demographic, etiologic, and laboratory data were collected and entered into a data base that forms the Washington Regional Burn Registry for the metropolitan Washington, DC, area.
