Abstract: Microbial cellulose is a natural polymer that can hold a quantity of water without any disconformities. Therefore, it is proposed for use as wound dressing material. We report a case of 28% total body surface area partial-thickness flame burn: approximately 4.5% superficial partial-thickness burns on anterior face and 23.5% combined superficial and deep partial-thickness burns on both upper arms and anterior trunk. A microbial cellulose dressing, Nanocell (Thai Nano Cellulose Co Ltd, Bangkok, Thailand), was applied to the face wound only once, without any further dressing change. Progress of healing, until full epithelialization on the face, was observed for 2 weeks. During the treatment period, the patient did not show any irritation or allergic reaction to this new dressing, and wound swab culture showed no evidence of bacteria presence. This innovative material can be an alternative dressing for superficial partial-thickness burn wounds. © 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
