Patients of high-voltage injury commonly present with devastating burns requiring prolonged hospitalization with multiple complications. Crossing of sufficient current flow through cardiac tissue can cause lethal arrhythmia. This may lead to immediate cardiac arrest. In the following case report we described a condition of probable anatomic disfigurement of the endocardium and intracardiac structures secondary to high-voltage electrical burn.
