Background: Poisoning caused by wasp and bee stings is the most common type of poisoning caused by insects in Türkiye. The wasp belongs to the family Vespidae, a subgroup of the class Hymenoptera (membrane-winged insects). While mild symptoms are frequently observed in response to a single wasp sting, multiple wasp stings can cause severe poisoning and toxic reactions.
Case Report: We present a case of a 7-year-old male patient who died after developing rhabdomyolysis, acute kidney injury (AKI), and multiple organ failure as a result of multiple wasp stings.
Conclusion: The case report of our patient revealed that poisoning from multiple wasp stings can show a fatal course in chil-dren. When the number of wasp stings is 20200 and when stings occur in the head-and-neck regions, AKI and mortality are high. Therefore, these patients should be hospitalized in the pediatric intensive care unit and monitored closely for toxic reactions.
