Abstract

MUNDKUR, S et al. Jellyfish envenomation: A chilling toxidrome of seizures and cyanosis - a case report. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.2, pp.1-3. ISSN 1999-7671.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/sajch.2018.v12i2.1429.

Jellyfish envenomation is a common incident in coastal areas all over the world. While the majority of reported cases are self-limiting with few lasting complications, a few deadly species can cause life-threatening and debilitating illnesses with a prolonged recovery time. Chrysaora spp. have been known to cause a diverse spectrum of manifestations. We report the case of a 7-year-old boy with jellyfish envenomation presenting with cyanosis, seizures, and hypertension not previously described in association with the Chrysaora spp.
