Case 2

This boy was burned with sulphuric acid. We removed his facial scars with serial excision instead of putting an unsightly skin graft on him. After three excisions, we were done. We left the scars on his abdomen as these could be covered by clothing. Replacing them with skin grafts would have resulted in a “robbing Peter to pay Paul” scenario. The final result is shown below.
