Segun Roze (1) y Hoge y Romano (2) hay 111 clases de serpientes coral, que se clasifican en tres generos-Leptomicrurus, Micrur@des y Micrurus-que comprenden poco mas de 50 especies. La informacion disponible sobre la importancia medica de este grupo es muy limitada. Los pocos trabajos publicados sobre el tema, la propia experiencia de los autores y una carta personal del Dr. Janis Roze sugieren que la situacion es la siguiente: la especie Micrurus fulvius es la mas importante en Estados Unidos… 
Mordedura de Serpiente en Niños en el Hospital Universitario Ramón González Valencia (1983-1993)
TLDR
The major frecuency was found in the school age with a little male predominance, 95% of children carne from the rural area and the most snake genus was Bothrops, the most common haemorrhagic manifestations were ecchymosis and gingival bleeding.
Maintaining Coral Snakes (Micrurus nigrocinctus, Serpentes: Elapidae) for venom production on an alternative fish-based diet.
Venomic and antivenomic analyses of the Central American coral snake, Micrurus nigrocinctus (Elapidae).
TLDR
The proteome of the venom of Micrurus nigrocinctus (Central American coral snake) was analyzed by a "venomics" approach, revealing a complex protein composition that mainly exert myotoxicity.
Characterization of α‐Neurotoxin and Phospholipase A2 Activities from Micrurus Venoms
New World elapids are coral snakes that belong to the genus Micrurus, and for which the venom biochemistry is mostly unknown. Analysis has been difficult because the coral snakes produce small
A study on venom yield of Brazilian coralsnakes and its use in the evaluation of antielapidic serum
TLDR
Due to the small size, which results in low innoculatory capacity, recommending high doses of antielapidic serum in accidents with coral snakes should be revised.
Myotoxicity and nephrotoxicity by Micrurus venoms in experimental envenomation.
Envenomation by Micrurus coral snakes in the Brazilian Amazon region: report of two cases.
TLDR
Two cases of proven coral snake bites were reported in Belém, Pará State, Brazil, and both patients received specific Micrurus antivenom and were discharged without further complications.
Snake venoms: from research to treatment
The present work offers a brief overview on how the problem of ophidism has been confronted in Costa Rica, and especially, on how scientific and technological research has contributed to this goal.
Mipartoxin-I, a novel three-finger toxin, is the major neurotoxic component in the venom of the redtail coral snake Micrurus mipartitus (Elapidae).
