Method: Ecological time series study of hospitalizations for burn injuries in Brazil, of individuals of both sexes and of all age groups. Data was collected by the DATA-SUS, Brazilian Hospital Information System. The simple linear regression method was used to analyze the trend of burn admissions. Results: There were a total of 574,184 burn admissions in the period, with a reduction in the hospitalization rate (1998-2018) from 16.45/100,000 to 12.6/100,000 inhabitants. There was a predominance of males, with an average rate of 18.38 hospitalizations/100,000 inhabitants, and from 0 to 9 years of age (34.05/100,000 inhabitants in males, and 23.66/100,000 inhabitants in females). The Brazilian region with the highest hospitalization rate due to burn injuries was the Midwest. Conclusion: There was a downward trend in the overall rate of hospitalizations for burn injuries, in both sexes, in all age groups and Brazilian regions, except for male age groups over 20 years and Midwest region, which remained stable.
