    1459-1462,1997. - This study involves a review of the records of 64 children referred to the University of los Andes Hospital with the diagnosis of scorpion envenomation.

    The patients were divided into group I (local manifestations, 42.4%) and group 2 (systemic manifestations, 7.8%). Seven of these patients had severe cardiorespiratory complications, came from distinct geographical zones and received antivenin.

    Our results indicate that poisonous and extremely dangerous scorpions predominate in certain geographical zones within the state of Merida, Venezuela.
