Death Due to Low Voltage Electric Shock Induced Myocarditis
Cardiology and Angiology: An International Journal,
Low voltage electric shock resulting in myocarditis induced delayed death is a rarity and has not been reported so far, to the best of our knowledge. The definitive diagnosis is autopsy based as it has variable clinical presentations. We report such a case where in the histopathologic findings of myocarditis came as a surprise during microscopic evaluation of the autopsy sections in a case with an apparently normal heart on gross examination. The present case mandates a careful microscopic examination of autopsy sections in cases of electrocution.
