Abstract

Epidemiological data related to Latrodectus bites over a 10-year period (1979-1988) in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, are presented. Data on distribution of accidents by year, month, sex, residence of person bitten and general symptomatology are given. Statistical analysis showed a mean of 28.1 bites cases per year, 80% in males, most of whom were farm workers. The Latrodectus bites were localized in arms, pelvic waist and legs. Forty-six per cent of bitten persons visit the clinic within 1 to 3 hours after the incident, and only 15% capture the animal responsible for the accident.
