More than four decades after she suffered 3rd and 4th degree burns during a napalm attack carried out by South Vietnamese airplanes during the Vietnam War, the Vietnamese woman, aged 9 years then (1972), experienced significant improvement in her pain and burn scars after she underwent laser treatment. She suffered daily pain, which she rated 10 out of 10, due to scars which covered 40% of her body. After a series of laser treatments, she reported softening of the scars, increased range of motion, nerve regeneration and reduction in pain 3 out of 10. This case has been published online Sept. 5, 2018 in JAMA Dermatology.
