Abstract
Introduction: Enzymatic debridement for mixed depth and full thickness burns is gaining recognition as an important technique available to the burns surgeon. Reductions in blood loss, the need for autologous skin grafting and the number of wounds requiring surgical excision are among the benefits of this evolving treatment modality. We present a case of successful treatment using enzymatic debridement of mixed depth flame burns in a young patient with systemic sclerosis (scleroderma). Methods: A 24-year-old man with rapidly progressive limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis suffered approximately 6% mixed depth flame burns to the right leg including areas of likel...
