Sir: We would like to report a unique case of onset of delirium associated with electrical injury and spinal trauma in an adult. Reviewing the literature on psychiatric complications of electrical injury, we found no report of a relationship between adult-onset delirium and electrical injury. 

Case report. Mr. A, a 25-year-old man, was admitted to our hospital in 2006 after having suffered an electrical injury with loss of consciousness and falling on his back from a height of 6 m.
