For pediatric patients with scars, more attention should focus on burn survivors, males, or those with skin injuries at the perineum and extremities to enhance prognosis and therapeutic methods, according to a study published in Burns. Researchers assessed clinical and epidemiologic features of pediatric inpatients with scars and managed a therapeutic program for children with scars. Data for patients with scars admitted in 1,064 tertiary hospitals from 2013 to 2018 were included in a cross-sectional study of 53,741 cases. Compared with those of adults and elderly patients with scars, clinical and demographic features of children with scars were analyzed statistically and highlighted. Children with scars were mainly male (62.27% vs 50.98% vs 49.85%, P<0.001) and were at risk for scalds (37.10%) and surgeries (34.11%) com- pared with adults and the elderly. The percentage of scars involving upper limbs (27.88% vs 21.69% vs 7.28%; P<0.001), lower limbs (15.14% vs 10.28% vs 6.56%; P<0.001) and perineum (4.59% vs 3.13% vs 2.65%; P<0.001) was higher in children than in other two groups, although the scalp/face/neck region was the most commonly affected. In children, scar contracture was the most typical complication (45.27%)
