Abstract

ARANEISM BY Kukulcania cf tractans IN MATURE ADULT MALE FROM MEXICO: A CASE REPORT

Héctor Gabriel Ramos-Rodríguez, Alejandro Valdez-Mondragón and José D. Méndez*

ABSTRACT

In this paper the case of an adult man with spider bite of Kukulcania cf. tractans ("Kukulcanism") (family Filistatidae) presented in Mexico is described. The bite was caused in distal third of right leg, with development of dermatonecrosis. The patient received oral therapy with Paracetamol 500 mg tablets and Dicloxacillin 500 mg capsules. A topical cream containing Betamethasone + Gentamicin + Clotrimazole was also recommended. Complete healing occurred 37 days after the bite. Ulcer healed with hypochromia and peripheral hyperchromia. The epidemiology of araneism caused by Kukulcania cf. tractans is not well known, so it is important to record the cases when the precise identification of the spider involved including its biogeography is made.

Keywords: Araneism, Kukulcania, dermatonecrosis, arachnoid accident.
