A 20 year old male after being struck by lightening remained quadriplegic for several months and finally almost fully recovered. His weakness was due to extensive peripheral nerve injury (involvement of plexuses, radicles and peripheral nerve trunks) as evident by clinical and neurophysiological studies. He also showed many well known medical complications of lightening injury viz. acute renal failure, hypercalcaemia, autonomic dysfunction and cataract.
