Major full-thickness burn injuries in newborns are rare but have been reported following the use of medical and warming devices during the early neonatal period. In this report, we present a newborn infant with major full-thickness contact burn injuries of 15% of the total body surface area (TBSA) caused by a water-filled warming bottle applied to the naked skin, and describe the sequential progress of epidermal necrosis and wound healing with autografting.
