Abstract

Envenomation by the brown recluse spider (Loxosceles reclusa) is associated with shock, significant hemolysis, renal insufficiency, and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Shock has never been associated with envenomation by L arizonica, a related species indigenous to Arizona, southern California, and northwestern Mexico. We report the case of a 13- year girl, bitten by a specimen of L arizonica (the spider was identified by an entomologist), in whom shock and a typical cutaneous lesion developed. She did not experience renal insufficiency or disseminated intravascular coagulation. Infectious causes of shock were excluded. She recovered completely with supportive care.
