Keywords: Tar, burn


Hot tar burns and removal of tar are unusual emergencies seen in the emergency departments. Because of the dense structure, cleaning difficulties and high temperature of the tar, tar burns requires a different management than the other burns. We present a 32 year old man who presents to our emergency department with hot tar burn.
