Autopsy Case Findings in Fatal Scorpion Bite

Mahamuni NM, Patne SS, Gadgil PA, Pandit GA


Abstract: Scorpion bite is a major public health problem in many developing countries like India especially in kokan areas, leading to life threatening complications. Delay in recognition and the hypoxemia increase the morbidity and mortality. Here we report a case of severe scorpion bite in a 4 year old child causing myocarditis accompanied with acute pulmonary edema and acute tubular necrosis leading to death. This case report will help the clinicians to know the organ systems which are affected in scorpion bite that lead to serious life threatening complications and guide them in their management reducing the mortality.
