    We present the first reported case of a partial thickness burn to the skin from discarded bone cement during a routine total hip replacement (THR). The patient required plastic surgical attention for 5 months before the skin was healed. We summarise the reported incidents of cement burns to various other structures and the circumstances in which these injuries can potentially occur.
