A disabling neurological disorder is reported occurring in a burns patient as a result of excessive nitrous oxide inhalation as an inpatient. The clinical findings are similar to those reported previously in cases of nitrous oxide abuse. We recommend that the risk of neurotoxicity should be considered when nitrous oxide is used for analgesia in burns patients.
