Antiretroviral treatment (ART) has increased life expectancy and the quality of life of many patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). As patients live longer many are admitted with conditions not related to HIV infection, for example trauma and burns. Practitioners are challenged by decisions regarding the management of immunocompetent burns patients. There are no randomised trials and no consensus guidelines for the management of HIV and burns.
