Abstract

Electrical injury may result in brain injury with delayed symptoms and sequelae. We report a case of high-voltage cerebral electrical injury in a 42-year-old man through his right hand with delayed symptoms and with imaging abnormalities suggesting that haemorrhage had occurred on the cortical somatosensory areas of his left cerebral hemisphere. An appropriate patient’s clinical history should be obtained to correlate the lesions to the event as delay between the event and the symptoms can be very long.
