Keraunoparalysis is a transient paralysis of the extremities, which results from close contact with lightning. In this case report, a 58-year-old man came in close contact with a bolt of lightning. His left foot was pulseless, pale, cold and with absence of capillary refill. His symptoms were initially interpreted as arterial occlusion, and therefore bypass surgery and even amputation were considered. However, his symptoms resolved within hours. Therefore, clinicians must consider keranoparalysis as a differential diagnosis in patients struck by lightning.
