I ; Andrade S. The mean time to onset of care after the scorpion sting was 40min minimum: Acute myocarditis following Tityus trinitatis envenoming: Since the most toxic peptides in scorpion venoms towards vertebrates are those targeting Nav channels, it can be hypothesized that Central American Centruroides produce toxin variants directed at these channels that are of lower potency in gusrrero or, alternatively, that such toxins are produced at a lower abundance No scorpion envenomation cases were recorded in Costa Rica for the period Dr.
