Burn is one of the most catastrophic physical injury. Rehabilitation from any physical injury, including burns, is largely influenced by psychologic variables. The ultimate quality of life of burned patients is based on interactions between their physical disabilities and their psychologic responses to their injury. We want to know how physical disabilities resulting from burn influence on psychodynamic response at acute stage using the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI).

We could get the MMPI results from thirty-three patients. The results showed normal range of mean MMPI T-score of all clinical scales, significant difference in hypomania scale between male and female groups, and also significant difference in hypomania scale between group related to butane inhalation and the other groups.

However we could not find any psychological change resulting from burn at acute phase in case of using MMPI. Therefore we decided that we would rather choose another types of method, especially depression or anxiety scale in next time.

Key Words: Burn, Psychological test, Minnesota multiphasic personality inventory (MMPI)
