Abstract/OtherAbstract:
More tourists are visiting the idyllic waters of the South Pacific each year. They share the shallow waters with the native wildlife, including the venomous stonefish. Although the injection of its venom has been reported to have occasional fatal neuromuscular and cardiovascular sequelae, severe tissue necrosis at the injection site has not been described. We present a case of stonefish injury that describes serious localised sequelae of stonefish envenomation
