This article shows the results of a retrospective analysis study, 2018-2019, with the aim of clinically and epidemiologically characterizing patients with snake bite accidents treated at Huixtla General Hospital, Chiapas, Mexico. The universe of study consists of No. 43 patients. The variables were studied: age, sex, occupation, time of aggression, place and time of aggression, clinical picture, hematological alterations, neurotoxic alterations, type of snake and laboratory studies. Snakebite is a significant occupational risk, especially for field workers, to whom prevention- focused educational campaigns should be run. Appropriate provision of anti-crotalic serum is recommended in hospitals located in risk areas and deepen the formation of health servers in these areas.

Keywords : Snake Bites, Chiapas, Clinical and Epidemiological Aspects.
