However, there is a small area, not densely populated in the northeast inside the Turimiquire Subregion where scorpion envenomings of medical importance occur. Envenomation by the scorpion Tityus breweri in the Guayana Shield, Venezuela: Natl La Salle,57 Other patients from that same ecological area have been hospitalized with heart arrhythmia characterized by bradycardia and bundle branch blockade data not published.

Separation of toxic components from the Brazilian scorpion Tityus serrulatus venom. They had received antivenom five hours after the bite This species, Tityus discrepans, is generally distributed in Caracas, the Federal District 39located approximately km far from Puerto La Cruz, and Barcelona.

In Venezuela, efforts have been made to develop toxoids for the prevention of serious envenoming by the genus Tityus. Detoxification with formaldehyde of venezuelan Tityus genus scorpion venoms.

The highest incidence occurred during the first three months of the year, with the highest peak in March. Lung tissue ultraestructural alterations on mice inoculated with Tityus discrepans Buthidae venom. At this time, specimen weight was from Sitientibus,15 Cardiovascular complications are the most severe, and when present they are usually fatal, even though patients escropionico treated in intensive care units The envenomings from this small area are serious, sometimes fatal.


Toxicon,27 This must include the identification of the etiologic agent, the study of the conditions that favor contact with humans, as well as the actions and proposals for its control.

The First Report of Tityus ( Scorpiones : Buthidae ) in Anzoátegui State , Venezuela

This coincided with the highest frequency within dwellings Figure 4. Recently, an alarming increase has been observed in several tropical and subtropical countries, such as Brazil, Mexico, Tunisia, and Morocco 6,50, In vivoit possibly involves the activation of clotting factors and the formation of microcoagula, so there is not a direct emponzonnamiento of the venom on lung tissue 14,18, From our calculations, from deaths due to scorpion envenoming registered at MSAS 64 in and 9 and 5 cases respectivelythere is a mortality rate of 0.

Scorpion envenoming is seasonal, dynamic, and variable throughout the year in these areas 21, During growth, they undergo periodical ecdysis, with exoskeleton substitution These factors lead to a variety of environmental conditions in Venezuela, which characterize a series of ecological areas that range from tropical scrub desert to Amazonian forest and high mountainous areas.


Scorpions can be found in almost all terrestrial ecosystem of varying climates emponzonmiento altitudes.

An epidemiological review of scorpion stings in Venezuela: the Northeastern region

Although the magnitude of scorpion envenoming in this state 45 can not be compared with Sucre 13,23,24,26 and Monagas States 25,28,59, emponzonamietno, it is still of major importance. Chactidae 33Cayooca Scorpionida: Educational measures are the most difficult to implement Additionally, from ten specimens, the average yield of venom is 1.

Escorpiones y Opiliones, un modelo para manejo y uso de claves. The first report of Tityus Scorpiones: He has also described five new genera: Maracaibo and surroundings, Zulia State habitat of Rhopalurus laticauda ; 2. Chactidae 37and Mesotityus Scorpionida: The total population has been calculated for each region and its municipalities with distribution of the Tityus genus. This paper demonstrates the magnitude of scorpion envenomings in Venezuela.
