Abstract

Stingray stings are painful injuries. In addition to the pain-relieving heat deactivation of the stingray toxin, the wound has to be cleaned to avoid secondary infection. Non-radiopaque foreign bodies should be ruled out by MRI. Stingray bites can cause severe injuries to water sportsmen and women with the need for surgical intervention.
