Abstract

There were an estimated 656 cases of vaporizer-related injuries seen in hospital emergency departments in 1979. Two cases of burns with respiratory involvement are described. Both children were directly exposed to steam from commercial vaporizers and suffered cutaneous and respiratory burns. These cases emphasize the hazards of steam vaporizers, devices that have no proven therapeutic benefits.
