ABSTRACT
We experienced 2 cases of acute renal failure caused by bee stings and snake bite. A man ex­perienced a toxic reaction following multiple Hornet stings. After an initial anaphylactic reac­tions he presented a delayed acute renal failure secondary to rhabdomyolysis. A second clinical case is a 48-year-old man bitten by Natrix tigrina lateralis. He presented with acute renal failure secondary to hemolysis and afibrinogenemia with thrombocytopenia. They completely re­covered without sequale after peritoneal dialysis.
