Introduction: Burns are among the top ten causes of accidental death in children under 14 years of age. Although the principles of burn treatment for pediatric patients are the same as for adults, there are important differences in the physiology and psychology of the pediatric patient.

Objective: The objective of this work is to carry out an updated review of the subject, emphasizing the physiological differences between the adult and pediatric population, in addition to disseminating a comprehensive management with different needs depending on the age group.

Materials and methods: A bibliographic search were carried out in MEDLINE, LILACS, MEDES and SciELO databases. Articles in English and Spanish languages. Keywords for the initial search were burns, Burns Inhalation, pediatric, Health Strategies, burns, Inhalation burns, paediatrics, Health Strategies.

Results: In the first stay, 257 articles were obtained, they were selected and reviewed; Total access was obtained to 132. Articles from adults were excluded, leaving finally the revision of 40 articles.

Conclusions: The burns that occur most in pediatric age are mild, however, the management by a multidisciplinary team does not have the importance required for this, the needs must be individualized according to the age of the patient.

Keywords: Burns, Burns Inhalation, pediatric, Health Strategies
