This systematic review identifies features of intentional non‐scald burns in physical abuse. Fifteen bibliographic databases of international literature (1950–2011) were searched to identify potential studies that were critically appraised using standardised methods. Primary studies with confirmed intentional non‐scald burns in children aged < 18 years were included to provide a descriptive analysis of the causation, appearance and distribution of burns.
