Abstract

Bites and stings are common in many tropical countries. Snakebite
predominantly affects the rural poor and causes both morbidity and
mortality. The clinical features of snake envenoming depend upon the
species: both local and systemic envenoming can occur. Spider bites
and scorpion, fish and jellyfish stings can all cause significant morbidity,
and occasional mortality.
