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.
