Abstract

Electrical injury can cause a variety of cardiac arrhythmias. Atrial fibrillation as a result of such injury is fairly rare, however and is rarer still in cases of low-tension electrical injury We present the case of a patient who developed acute atrial fibrillation in association with low-voltage electrical injury, which resolved after the intravenous administration of digoxin.
