Abstract

CLINICAL PRESENTATION OF SCORPION STING

Dr. Manisha C. Aswale*, Prof. Dr. Rajendra Urade and Dr. Mamta P. Adhao

Abstract

Scorpion bite is a common global public health problem including India. Despite various speciesof scorpions, only few of these can be potentially lethal to humans. In India, the annual number of scorpion stings cases exceeds 1.23 million, of which over 32,250 may be fatal. Only about 25 species are known to have venom capable of killing a human.[1] In some parts of the world with highly venomous species human fatalities regularly occur, primarily in areas with limited access to medical treatment. Scorpion bite can result in a wide range of clinical effects such as neurotoxicity, cardio toxicity and respiratory dysfunction including pulmonary oedema. Anti-scorpion venom is the only specific treatment available in India but has many limitations. Wide arrays of the plants and their active principles have been evaluated for pharmacological properties which is useful in the treatment of scorpion bite.

Keywords: Scorpion bite, Ayurveda, Anti scorpion venom, vrischika.
