Abstract

Neurological complications following viper bite are uncommon and are generally as a result of intracerebral or subarachnoid bleed and rarely due to cerebral infarction. We report a young male who following viperine bite developed local tissue swelling, haemorrhagic manifestations due to disseminated intravascular coagulation and later developed acute flaccid paraplegia as a result of dorsal spinal cord involvement.
