Accidental hypothermia has increased in prevalence among the aged poor, probably because of a marked increase in heating costs. Most cases of accidental hypothermia in the past have been reported from either England or the northern United States. We report our experience with this disorder in the Tampa (Florida) General Hospital over the past five years. Different manifestations, treatment, and complications are reviewed.
