Abstract/OtherAbstract:
High-voltage electrical burns on genitalia and perineal areas are very rare and only sporadic reports are available in the literature with often confusing diagnoses and inconspicuous treatment protocols. Although the surgical treatment of extremities lesions is well established and includes appropriate debridement, temporary wounds coverage, and final adequate soft-tissue reconstruction, management of genital lesions still remains controversial and challenging. The authors present a rare case of severe high-voltage electrical injury with involvement of upper extremities and complex lesions localized to the genitalia and perineal region. Treatment required a multidisciplinary approach including the plastic surgery and the urologic and andrologic teams.
