Abstract

Scorpion stinging is one of the major causes of mortality in the tropical and subtropical countries. Hemiscorpius lepturus, Androctonus crassicauda and Mesobuthus eupeus are most important species that cause a lot of scorpion stings in Iran. In the present research, effects of H. lepturus envenomation on blood and urine in stung persons who referred to the health center of Hendijan sw Iran were studied.

In this study 66 files of whom referred to the health centre of Hendijan, sw Iran, followed by scorpion sting. We evaluated thier blood parameters (CBC, PT and PTT) urine parameters (hematuria and hemoglobinuria) and some epidemiologic parameters.

Results of this study showd that the patients were in the age range of 13- 63 years. The highest rate of blood changes in patients was related to PTT with 72.7%. Statically analyze showd a significant difference among normal and abnormal PT and PTT in the scorpion stung patients (P< 0.05).

Results of this study revealed that PT and PTT among the stung scorpion patients were more affected by H. lepturus compared to the other hematological parameters. In addition, hematuria was occured in the majority of the patients which is a sign of sever damaging effects of H. lepturu venom on kidney.
