ND92.0Y/T21 Other specified burn of trunk except perineum or genitalia, epidermal burn



Other specified burns of the trunk except perineum and genitalia, epidermal burns are caused by exposure to high temperatures, such as hot liquids, fire, steam, chemicals, or radiation.


The diagnosis is made based on a physical examination, medical history, and laboratory tests. The burn can be classified according to depth and size. First-degree burns are superficial and cause redness and swelling. Second-degree burns are deeper and cause blistering, and third-degree burns are severe and cause extensive tissue damage.

Differential diagnosis

Other conditions that can cause similar signs and symptoms include contact dermatitis, frostbite, and heatstroke.


Treatment depends on the severity of the burn and may include cleansing and dressing the wound, pain relief medications, and skin grafts.


The prognosis depends on the severity of the burn. Most mild to moderate burns heal within two to three weeks. Severe burns may take longer to heal and may cause scarring.
