Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In rural Australia animal attacks and bites are an increasingly common phenomenon. The pufferfish is native to the north-eastern coast of Australia and is becoming increasingly tempted closer ashore. We present the first case and review of the literature of a vicious fish bite from this animal in a child in rural Australia.
