Epiglottic enlargement: Two unusual causes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

7 Scopus citations


We present two patients with airway obstruction due to supraglottic swelling; one was caused by a brown spider bite on an ear (loxoscelism) and the other from eating buffalo fish. In the latter patient it was likely due to scrombroid poisoning, a histamine-like reaction, but may have been an anaphylaxic reaction.
