“…The results of Talebian (2006) study in Kashan denoted that scorpion sting in boys was more frequent (63%) (Talebian & Doroodgar, 2006). Similar findings are reported by Dehghani et al(2010), Dabo et al(2011), El Hidan et al (2015), (Dabo et al, 2011;Dehghni, Vazirianzadeh, Rahimi-Nasrabadi, & Moravvej, 2010;El Hidan, Oulaid Touloun, & Boumezzough, 2015). This may be ascribed to vigorous activities engaged by boys, as compared to girls.…”

“…This finding was in agreement with a previous investigation carried out in Iran by Esmaeil, Mulood, Shahla, Abedin, Nahid, Eslam, and Alireza (2018), while in other studies around the world different death rates have been reported after scorpion stings. This is presumably because of the species of scorpion responsible and the availability of medical care and anti-venom (El Hidan, Touloun, & Boumezzough, 2015;Araújo, Tavares, Marques, Vieira, & Leite, 2017).…”
