Abstract

Scorpions are venomous arthropods found worldwide. The sequelae of scorpion stings depend on the composition and amount of venom entering the body. The composition of venom depends on the scorpion species. Renal insufficiency following a scorpion sting is relatively rare with only 62 reported cases.
