Sepsis continue to be the major cause of mortality in severely burned patients. There are important two aspects in the general response to thermal injury. The first is the lack of homeostatic control and the second, the interaction between the burn and bacterial colonization. Multidisciplinary care to avoid burn infection includes development of fluid resuscitation regimes, early nutritional support, control of infection, early wound excision in second and third degree burns and both synthetic and collagen based skin substitutes or autographs, in addition to strict isolation routines in the burn unit and germ specific therapeutical agents in topical and systemic applications.

Key words: Infection, burns.
