Abstract

Akrep sokmaları, otonom sinir sistemi hasarına bağlı sistemik etkilere sahip, hayatı tehdit edici ve toksikolojik acil durumlardır. Subaraknoid kanama (SAK), akrep sokmasının oldukça nadir bir komplikasyonudur. Bu yazıda, akrep sokması sonrası çok nadir rastlanan SAK komplikasyonu gelişen 62 yaşında erkek hastayı sunuyoruz. Hemorajik inme ile başvuran hastalar için yaşamı tehdit eden bir acil durum olduğundan, bu komplikasyonun erken tanı ve hızlı yönetimi için şüphelenmek çok önemlidir.

Subarachnoid hemorrhage following scorpion bite: case report

Abstract

Scorpion stings are life threatening and toxicological emergencies with systemic effects caused by autonomic nervous system damage. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is extremely rare complication of scorpion sting. In this report, we present an unusual case of a 62-year-old male patient with scorpion sting who developed a complication of SAH. A high index of suspicion is vital for earlydiagnosis and prompt management of the complication because it is as a life-threatening emergency for patients presenting with hemorrhagic stroke.
