Abstract:

The pathology of lightning, or keraunopathology is known only to a few specialists.

In an average year in France, lightning kills ten people and injures another 60 to 100, often with serious sequelae.

Because of the seriousness of the lightning accidents, increased promotion of awareness among the entire population is essential and not necessarily expensive.
