The incidence of pediatric burn (<18 years old) in Taiwan according to data from Childhood Burn Foundation Taiwan ROC was about 33.4%. The incidence of reconstruction needed for this age group was also about the same. From the data presented at Singapore in the year 2006, there was an average of 36.3% (patient number: 2,833/7,795) of pediatric burn (<18 years old) in Linkou burn center (LBC), Chang Gung memorial Hospital (CGMH) from 1986 to 2004 [1]. Among these, one-third of the patients needed reconstruction. This is a large reconstruction group and is of concern.
