We report here the successful treatment of a 9-year-old boy who suffered a high-voltage electrical injury and a hospital course complicated by unexpected airway obstruction from Ascaris lumbricoides. Review of the literature revealed 4 previous reports of this complication. We also discuss options for prevention and treatment of this rare complication of a common infestation.
