Red-back spider (Latrodectus mactans hasselti) envenomation in a neonate.
Med J Aust 1983 Dec 10-24; 2(12):665-6MJ

Abstract

A case of red-back spider (Latrodectus mactans hasselti) envenomation in a neonate is presented. The signs of envenomation in a neonate are discussed, together with the dose of antivenom necessary for the successful treatment of envenomation. In episodes of untractable crying in neonates, the possibility that the baby has been bitten by a red-back spider should be considered.
