Case reportFatal self-envenomation in a brown tree snake, Boiga irregularis, from south-east Queensland
چکیده انگلیسی

•A case of self-envenomation in Boiga irregularis proves fatal.•Clinical signs of envenomation are consistent with other reptilian prey species.•Neurotoxic effects included ataxia and respiratory failure associated with paralysis.

The case history and clinical signs of a fatal self-envenomation event by a brown tree snake, Boiga irregularis, in South-east Queensland, Australia, are presented. Clinical signs began 20 minutes post-envenomation with muscle twitching, ataxia, and heat seeking behavior which progressed to partial paralysis by 6 hours, generalised paralysis and respiratory arrest at 10 hours and cardiac arrest by 12 hours post-envenomation. Clinical signs are suggestive of potent neurotoxicity for B. irregularis to its own venom.
