Abstract

Snakebites are estimated to affect more than 2.5 million people annually, of whom more than 100,000 die. Viper bites cause various systemic symptoms such as: coagulopathy; haemolysis; acute renal failure; a generalized increase in capillary permeability; rhabdomyolysis; and neurotoxicity. Wide spectrums of vascular complications are seen. We report the case of a patient developing gangrenous changes in a lower limb along with the development of perinepheric and retroperitoneal haematoma with acute cortical necrosis of the kidneys.
