A case of envenoming by Portuguese man-of-war from the Brazilian coast.

Abstract

This is an individual case report on envenoming caused by the cnidarian Portuguese man-of-war. The reported local reactions and the clinical symptoms are similar to those already known for Portuguese man-of-war envenoming. As far as we know it is the first clinical case documented for the Brazilian shores.
