Topics from this paper

Etiology of Irukandji Syndrome with particular focus on the venom ecology and life history of one medically significant carybdeid box jellyfish Alatina moseri
TLDR
The amount of opiates required for treatment was indicative of sting severity and there is evidence to suggest that stings occurring out on the reef locations have a higher probability of resulting in a more severe sting with an increased potential for cardiac damage presenting in this region.

Irukandji syndrome, catecholamines, and mid-ventricular stress cardiomyopathy.

TLDR
This is the first reported case of mid-ventricular stress cardiomyopathy secondary to 'Irukandji syndrome', following envenomisation from a jellyfish, found in Far North Queensland, Australia prevalent during the warmer months of the year. Expand
Fatal jellyfish envenoming—Pediatric and geographic vulnerabilities
TLDR
A recommended approach to autopsy in suspected cases of fatalities following envenomation from the multi-tentacled box jellyfish, Chironex fleckeri, is described, which should include examination of the clothing and skin surfaces for the fine tentacles of ChirOnexfleckeri. Expand
Immunological Responses to Envenomation
TLDR
This review characterises venom-derived compounds as a source of immune modulating drugs for treatment of disease and discusses established venom-associated immunopathology, including allergy and systemic inflammation. Expand
Lion's mane jellyfish sting
The authors present the case of an Irukandji-like syndrome resulting from cnidarian envenomation, following multiple stings from the lion's mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata) encountered by a seaExpand
Comparative Evaluation of Polyclonal Antibodies in the Characterization of Nematocyst Proteins from Australian Irukandji and Chironex fleckeri Species
TLDR
Immunoblot assays revealed distinc levels of immune recognition across the three species, indicating that Mk specific reagents may bind both Irukandji and Cf venoms, and the implications of such antibody binding for future antivenom development require further investigation. Expand
Envenomation with Skin Manifestations and Treatments
TLDR
This review focuses on Jellyfish toxins, symptoms and treatment after sting in order to reduce treatment time, improve the survival rate for medical providers and to set a reference for follow-up study. Expand
Irukandji en Guadeloupe : étude rétrospective des envenimations par les méduses aux urgences en Guadeloupe entre 2010 et 2016 : quand diagnostiquer le syndrome d'Irukandji ?
TLDR
L’envenimation par les meduses etait frequemment associee a un syndrome d’Irukandji, principalement du a l’espece Alatina alata, dont la periodicite peut etre determinee selon les mois et le cycle of the lune. Expand
Retrospective study of jellyfish envenomation in emergency wards in Guadeloupe between 2010 and 2016: When to diagnose Irukandji syndrome?
TLDR
Jellyfish envenomation was frequently associated with Irukandji Syndrome in Guadeloupean emergency wards, and their periodicity can be determined according to the cycle of the moon. Expand
Dermatitis caused by coelenterates
TLDR
A correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment are essential in cases of cnidarian envenomations, particularly because specific antivenoms are lacking. Expand
