We report two cases of newborns who developed second-degree burns following resuscitation under infra-red heating lamps. Both infants were asphyxic and suffered from insufficient peripheral circulation which, combined with the long duration of the exposure to the light, contributed to the development of the lesions. Both infants died shortly after birth for reasons other than the burns.
