Scorpionism in Central America, with special reference to the case of Panama

In this paper, we endeavor to review the scorpionism problem in the Central American region with particular emphasis on Panama, where scorpion envenomation has acquired increasing epidemiological importance in recent years I ; Basurto G.

Reinforcing these data from humans, Marinkelle and Stahnke 53 determined that C. Scorpion sting is a health problem in some places of Mexico.

March 8, Conflicts of interest: The later patients were treated, the more severe their envenomation state. MgTX has been used as a tool to study activation in this cell population, since it inhibits the intracellular production of Th-1 as well as Th-2 cytokines In three cases of C. Current studies on the toxins mechanisms of action have shown that they act on cell membranes producing changes on the trans-membrane action potential and permeability changes in calcium and potassium channels altering the release of neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine 2.

For instance, six Centruroides species are highly toxic in Mexico C. Scorpion stings of medical relevance in Central America involve species of Centruroides and Tityusand it is also the objective of this review to compare both envenomation syndromes.
