“…ESM is a rare clinical entity with very few case reports available in the literature. [ 3 4 5 6 7 8 ] Our case probably represents the mildest form of ESM characterized by disruption of RPE and photoreceptor layer and showing spontaneous resolution. However, the most commonly reported form of ESM is characterized by defect in RPE and outer retinal layers progressing to form outer lamellar hole with intact internal limiting membrane (ILM) over the bare RPE, with or without associated cystic changes noted on OCT.…”

“…Some of the complications after electrical injuries are renal failure, cardiac arrest, arrhythmias, bone fracture, wound infections, muscle infections, amputation, long bone fracture, numbness, unconsciousness, internal bleeding, internal organ perforations, and acalculous cholecystitis [10,[33][34][35][36][37]. And long-term complications are cataract, transverse myelitis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and psychological and neurological disorders [41][42][43][44][45][46][47].…”

“…The basic fundamentals for treatment of these injuries are basic trauma rescuscitation, decompression and debridement, early definitive closure [10,[33][34][35][36][37] and treatment of special parts of body like hand and elbow, splinting, rehabilitation [38][39][40][41][42][43] and neurological and psychological support [44][45][46][47][48][49][50]…”
