Self-Esteem and Depression in Burn Afflicted Women: A comment on Rubab et al.' Study

Sabira Aalia Dkhar

I read the article by Rubab et al. with considerable interest [1]. The study assessing self-esteem and depression in burn afflicted women should be regarded as an important aspect in the welfare of the patients and is commendable on what the study has tried to achieve in this aspect. The findings showed that depression is dependent on burn status, religion, age and marital status of the patient, whereas selfesteem is dependent on burn status. I would like to point out some points or suggestions, I noticed in methodology and term used in the article.
