Burns at pediatric ages are a public health problem: most traumatic accidents, which occur inside the home are irrelevant. Accidental events are one of the main agents that affect childhood, cause injuries and even death, resulting in the growing need to increase the attention for this sector of the population. We present the case of a pediatric patient with electric burn and further we suggest a theoretical model with elemental preventive measures.
