Abstract

This a retrospective study performed in Dr. Shariati hospital, Fasa, Southern Iran on pregnant women referred due to burn. Most burns had happened in the second trimester, maternal and fetal mortality were 40.7% and 48.1% respectively. 59.9% of victims were from low socioeconomic class and 23% of them were burned due to suicidal attempts. This study concludes that maternal and fetal mortality is determined by total burn surface area, degree of burn, presence of pregnancy, availability of care facilities and time elapsed between burn and hospital admission. It is also concluded that pregnancy increases the maternal mortality rate in burn.
