This report describes the management of a charcoal burn involving deep tissues at different anatomic sites. The closure of burn wounds should be considered as a functional and cosmetic outcome whenever possible. Our aim should be to get the soft tissue of the early burned wound closed. A satisfactory result can be achieved if both the functional anatomy and the aesthetic outcome can be kept in mind while planning the management.
