Abstract

Electric perioral burns are rarely reported in the literature. Perioral electric burns represented less than 2% of the total burn. The present case is reported of oral commissure burn due to electric current. There was mild swelling and pain over the perioral region. Coagulation necrosis of the upper and lower lip created a defect of approximately 2x3 cm2 with yellowish slough. This report signifies the perioral electric burns in children would be a reconstructive challenge and may affect the standard of living psychologically. However, understanding the principles of the injury and possible treatment options should be in the armamentarium of each surgeon.
