Background: Treatment of extraordinarily large deep burns remains a huge clinical challenge.
Case Report: This article is a summary of our experience with the treatment of a patient with an extraordinarily large deep burn (99.5% TBSA and 23% fourth degree burn) by using the “microskin autografting and alloskin repeated grafting” method to close the deep burn wound because of scarcity of skin sources of the patient.
Conclusions: The patient has been observed for 2 years, and is able to face the reality of life peacefully with the support of his family.
