Hydrofluoric acid burns, if not promptly recognized and properly treated, may produce serious injury and prolonged disability. Clinically, characteristic and specific treatment, given early, is very effective. A series of forty-five burns is reviewed and a plan of treatment is proposed which depends in part on the severity of the tissue injury and includes local injections of 10 per cent calcium gluconate.
