An unusual case of tracheobronchial scald associated with head and neck scald is reported. A five-month-old infant, lying on his back with his face under the hot water tap, not only sustained head and neck scalds, but also swallowed and aspirated hot water. Burns of the mouth, pharynx, trachea, major bronchi, and bronchides ensued.
