Electrical injuries are common physical injuries in daily life. Vascular injury and thrombosis are frequently found in cases of high-voltage electric injury because of the low resistance of vascular tissue, but are rarely reported in low-voltage electric injuries. Acute stroke is not a common complication of electrical injury, and only a few cases of acute stroke have been reported for low-voltage injures. Electric shock injury with low-voltage alternating currents and prolonged contact periods may possibly cause ischemic stroke. We present a case of a man who had a low-voltage electrical injury, by an ischemic stroke.

Keywords: Ischemic stroke, low-voltage electrical injury, neurologic complication
