Abstract

Occasionally, insect bites producing systemic complications are the reason for admission to paediatric intensive care. We report an interesting case of multiple bee stings in a 2-year-old boy. The boy, who was stung more than 200 times by honey bees, had a severely deranged coagulation profile with marked elevation of the hepatic enzymes. This complication has not been reported to date. Prompt intensive supportive care led to the child's total recovery.
