We, herein, present a patient with no history of trauma who developed shoulder pain after undergoing low-voltage electric shock. According to the computed tomography, there was a multi-segmental fracture that extended into the glenoid cavity of the left scapula. A good outcome was obtained after open reduction and internal fixation. Emergency physicians should be aware of the possibility of scapular fracture extending into the glenoid cavity, especially in patients with shoulder pain after electrical injury.
