Exfoliating skin disorders or exfoliative and necrotizing disease of the skin form an important part for all those managing acute dermatological and plastic surgery emergencies; including the burns surgeon. It is imperative that such conditions are evaluated in a burns text as these patients should be managed on a burns unit with allied professional input. This chapter focuses on the classification, aetiology, and management of such disorders. Management includes initial assessment and suggested surgical approach. In addition scoring and prognostic indicators are referenced to allow the reader application of knowledge in clinical practice.
