Acute kidney injury due to multiple wasp stings in an eightyear- old child
Keywords:Acute kidney injury, Wasp stings, Wasp toxins
Wasp stings are not uncommon in Nepal. The manifestations of stings are usually benign and localised at the site of stings. However, susceptible individuals may present with multi-systemic and potentially fatal complications. We report here a child who developed acute kidney injury, nine days after multiple wasp stings. The renal function recovered with supportive management including two sessions of haemodialysis. This case report highlights that management of wasp stings should be done in consultation with centre which has facilities for dialysis.
