The goal in the treatment of septic burn wounds, as in any infection, is to reestablish the normal balance between the bacteria and the host defense. This is readily done by controlling the numerical level of bacteria while expending all efforts to remove irreversibly damaged tissue and obtaining a closed wound by autograft with the patient's own skin as rapidly as possible.
