Hello folks,


I'm posting on behalf of a friend/colleague who is a physician doing a
toxicology rotation. Yesterday a patient visited the ER with an extremely
swollen hand, saying that he had contact with a lionfish while diving about
ten days ago. No problems occurred since then. Has anyone had experience
with lionfish toxins? First response? Known household treatments? Any
specific medicines that work better than others?


Thanks for any guidance
