Rights and Permissions

Clinical manifestations following scorpion envenomation are a result of autonomic outburst and direct actions of toxin on various systems. Involvement of central nervous system (CNS) following scorpion envenomation is rare. Encephalopathy, cerebral edema, subarachnoid hemorrhage, nonhemorrhagic strokes, and cortical necrosis are a few CNS complications described in the medical literature due to scorpion envenomation. We report a rare case of scorpion envenomation in which patient had symmetrical hemorrhages in the thalamus and cerebellum.
