Abstract

Summary Four patients are reported with partial skin loss burns of the skin due to contact with petrol. The aetiology and nature of these skin changes are discussed. Two of these patients developed renal failure. Inhalation or skin absorption of petrol or the lead alkyls appears to be of no significance in the aetiology of this condition. Treatment of these chemical burns is discussed.
