Abstract

Many people die every year because of venomous animal bites and stings. Among venomous stings, scorpion stings are a major cause of global public health issues associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. Worldwide, only about 30 of the estimated 1500 species of scorpions produce venom toxic enough to be fatal. Signs and symptoms at the site of a scorpion sting may include pain, which can be intense, numbness, tingling, slight swelling and warmth. The clinical manifestations seen in scorpions seem like Vrischika Damsha in Agadatantra. This is a case study of a scorpion sting with acute symptoms of pain, burning sensation and erythema. Based upon the result of the study Arkapatra Ghrita Dhara has shown assuring results in the management of acute scorpion envenomation.
