Abstract

 Scorpion bite is a common health problem in many parts of the world, including the Iran’s tropics. There are thousands of cases and a number of deaths due to SCORPION bite every year in the country. The present study aims to provide further data regarding the details, complications and outcomes of SCORPION bite cases referring to Razi Hospital, Ahwaz, from March 2011 to April 2012. 267 patients (56.3% females) with a mean age of 35.2±15.8 years were included in the study. The most common genus of SCORPION involved was Hemiscorpius (69.3%) and the most frequent body part involved was the lower limb (38.9%). The frequency of HEMOLYSIS-induced renal insufficiency and death after SCORPION bite were 1.9% and 1.1%, respectively. Of all the factors evaluated in this series only the old age was associated with higher possibility of renal insufficiency (P<0.001).
