Survival after sustaining a 95 per cent body surface area burn is uncommon. We report the successful treatment of a 21-year-old patient who sustained such an extensive burn injury. This report stresses the importance of early aggressive excision of the burn eschar and early coverage with allografts (homografts) and later coverage with autogenous keratinocytes.
