“…The local symptoms most commonly reported included local pain, edema, hyperemia, swelling, burning, numbness and itching, whereas systemic symptoms consisted of dry mouth, thirst, sweating, hypotension, hypertension, cramps, tremor, nausea, vomiting, breathing difficulty, tachycardia, sialorrhea, restlessness, hemolytic-uremic syndrome, cyanosis, cardiac failure and/or acute pulmonary edema, and death (33)(34)(35)(36)(37)(39)(40)(41)(42). In a study carried out in 2005, a total of 24,261 cases of scorpion sting were reported (42).…”

While all scorpions possess venoms, all but two of the approximately 30 to 50 medically significant species are members of the family Buthidae (3,4). Due to their widespread geographic distribution, synanthropic habits and medical significance to large human populations in many tropical and subtropical regions, there has been greater interest and research conducted with buthid scorpions than with any other group (1,5).…”
