Abstract

TORREZ, Pasesa Q. et al. First report of an accident with the speckled forest pit viper (Bothriopsis taeniata) in Brazil. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2009, vol.42, n.3, pp.342-344. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822009000300020.

The first reported case of an accident with Bothriopsis taeniata in Brazil is described. The victim, a 43-year-old man, was bitten just above his right heel and presented a clinical condition compatible with mild Bothrops poisoning: local edema with hemorrhage at the bite site and pain, although without coagulopathy.

Keywords : Bothriopsis taeniata; Bothrops accident; Amazon region.
