Abstract

Wasp bite induced allergic reactions or organ dysfunction are not uncommon in tropical countries. Though anaphylaxis and renal dysfunction have been reported, myocardial involvement in the form of myocarditis is rare. Awareness about such complications is important as these affect clinical course and outcomes. We present a case of wasp bite induced myocarditis which was diagnosed when patient did not improve as expected.
