High voltage electric burns can cause massive damage to the body tissues. Direct contact with the live electric wires may result in severe damage of the underlying subdermal tissues. However, the superficial presentation is often misleading as most of the damage occurs under the skin. Very less literature has been found regarding the presentation of high voltage burns in head and neck region. We present a patient who sustained high voltage burns in the neck region resulting in massive damage of the underlying tissues. This lead to challenges for the anesthesiologist.
