Accidents happen: an unusual case of neonatal burn

We report an unusual case of partial thickness contact burns to a neonate after he accidentally urinated on an electrical lamp causing the bulb to explode. We recommend that lamps should be covered and located away from children. Providing parental education on burn injury prevention and improving clinician awareness is vital.
