Dear Editor,

burn injuries are among the most devastating injuries in general, affecting not only all age groups but also all geographical areas in the world. In addition causing morbidity and mortality, they also have enormous economic, psychological and somatic impacts with long-lasting consequences. Continuous developments in burn treatment have significantly improved burn management and quality of care worldwide [1]. In Europe, the paediatric population still constitutes a high proportion of burn inpatients [2–4].
