Neuropathy from household electric shock

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


While neuropathy following electric shock has been well documented, this complication has always been associated with coexisting soft tissue injury. Two cases are reported of neuropathy following accidental household electric shock to the hand in which there was no associated soft tissue injury. These resulted in pain and disability for up to six months. Emergency physicians should be aware of the potential for this injury and that it has a good prognosis. 1992 Australasian College for Emergency Medicine and Australasian Society for Emergency Medicine
