    BLUMENTHAL, Ryan; TRENGROVE, Estelle; JANDRELL, Ian R  y  SAAYMAN, Gert. Lightning medicine in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2012, vol.102, n.7, pp. 625-626. ISSN 0256-9574.

    South Africa has a rich history of lightning research; however, research on the clinical and pathological effects and features of lightning-related injury (keraunomedicine or lightning medicine) remains neglected locally. By providing an overview of keraunomedicine and focussing on South African perspectives, we hope to raise awareness and propose that a concerted and co-ordinated attempt be made to report and collate data regarding lightning strike victims in South Africa.
