“…This finding coheres with previous reports exhibiting a direct/indirect nephrotoxic outcome by the venom because, besides the information on last paragraph, it also produces the release of many modulators and mediators such as neurotransmitters, cytokines; oxygen-free radicals, and lipidic solutions [46][47][48]. This development is present in C. margaritatus [49], Hottentota gentili [50]; T. nororientalis [51], Androctonus australis hector [46]; Androctonus liouvillei [47], and T. caripintensis [48], along other specimens from the Buthidae family.…”

“…Scorpion envenomation is a real public health problem in many parts of the world, especially in North Africa, Central America, South America, the Middle East and India [1][2][3][4], with over 1.2 million cases of scorpion stings and 3 250 deaths each year worldwide [5]. Among the 1 500 species described, venoms of at least 25 species are of medical importance for humans and the majority of those species belong to Buthus, Parabuthus, Mesobuthus, Tityus, Leiurus, Androctonus and Centruroides genera of Buthidae family [5].…”

“…However the works done so far have rarely addressed the Moroccan Sahara and pre-Saharan areas, such as Zagora oases. This area is known by the presence of five species of scorpions including dangerous species like Hottentotta gentili (H. gentili), Androctonus amoreuxi (A. amoreuxi) and Androctonus liouvillei (A. liouvillei) [4]. The presence of this dangerous wildlife may suggest a high incidence of scorpion envenomation.…”
