Keywords:Unnatural female death, thermal injury,Septicemia
Burns are the injuries that are produced by application of dry heat such as flame, radiant heat or some heated soiled substance like metal or glass from the surface of the body resulting in tissue destruction. According to WHO estimates about 2,65,000 deaths occur each year from fires alone globally, with more deaths from scalds, electrical burns, and other forms of burns for which data are not available. The majority of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries, with almost half occur in the WHO South-East Asia Region. In India around 7 million people suffer from burn injuries each year with 1.4 lakh deaths and 2.4 lakh people suffer with disability. Burn death rates have been decreasing in high income countries.1Burn injury are higher in females than males. The higher risk for females is associated with open fire cooking, or unsafe cook stoves, loose clothing. Self-directed or interpersonal violence is also a factor for burn injuries. The present study is retrospective study which was carried out in the Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology at B. J. Medical College and Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad during the period from January 2018 to December 2018 to determine trends & pattern in unnatural female death due to burns cases and their practical approach to shrinkage the incidence of female burns cases as much as possible. In study we come across some particularized factor which exaggerated the recent condition in the society. The various facets are investigated and conferred in specifics.
