Feathering burn or ferning, also called Lichtenberg figures, in a decendent who was struck by lightning. These patterns typically appear within one hour of the lightning strike and fade within a few days. Feathering burns are not true burns and do not require any treatment. Thermal burns may occur if the patient’s clothing catches fire or if the patient is wearing any metal objects that heat up and cause a direct burn.
