We present 852 patients with particular types of burn injuries in addition to burn injuries of late sequelae that occurred as a result of falling inside clay cookers. These patient records are from the Palandoken SSK Hospital, Department of Emergency and Erzurum Numune State Hospital Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Emergency Department. Acute and late period tandir burns and their complications were investigated. All complications (death, morbidity, amputations, and Marjolin’s ulcers) were included in the study. These records are over a duration of 15 years, retrospectively. Tandoori is a particular method of cooking food in a clay cooker. This is generally located in a separate room of the home in rural areas. Burns occur since the people live in crowded quarters and from time to time any one of them may fall inside the clay cooker. The severity of the burns depends on both the fire situation and the length of time the person is inside the cooker. Most of the patients had third degree burns and were treated with split thickness skin grafts, Z-plasties, and skin flaps for survival. The most common burn locations were the hands, feet, and scalp for children and the shoulder, elbow and scalp for adults. Children were the most affected age group. We present this retrospective study to show the catastrophic and terrible complications of “Tandir ”.
