Abstract:

Scorpion bites are more common in Saudi Arabia as like in other countries. Normally, the stings are harmless and well tolerated by adult humans, but, sometime around 30% of untreated cases may show up very serious clinical conditions, including death rarely. Hence, we report a case of scorpion sting that has presented with decreased pulse rate which was manageable easily.

Key words: Scorpion sting, Decreased pulse rate, Scorpion sting management.
