Abstract

Abstract Electrical burns constitute a significant component of burn injuries worldwide. Cason (1981) reported about 150 deaths occurring every year from electrical injuries in the UK. However, spinal cord involvement is a relatively uncommon sequel of electrical injury. A case of paraplegia mainly with motor involvement, following electrical injury, and near complete recovery is reported.
