A case of high-voltage electrical injury with massive retroperitoneal muscle necrosis, focal hepatic coagulation necrosis, acute pancreatitis, and an acute coagulopathy with factor V, factor X, and platelet deficits occurred. Visceral involvement by electrical current is unusual, and to our knowledge, hepatic necrosis from this type of injury has not been described previously.
