The article highlights the management of a large tracheocutaneous fistula following accidental high voltage electrical burns. This large tracheocutaneous fistula with a surrounding raw area was managed with a two flap cover along with reconstruction of the tracheal rings. A superiorly based sternocleidomastoid myocutaneous flap was used to provide the inner lining of fistula and the tracheal rings were reconstructed by costochond ral grafts and the skin cover was provided by a deltopectoral flap. The post-operative period was uneventful and with a satisfactory result.
