Abstract

Saw scaled viper is one of the venomous snakes in Sri Lanka. (1) It has different species worldwide. Bleeding manifestations and mortality are varying among them. There is no reported case on saw scaled bite related death in Sri Lanka. (1) Coagulopathy is the commonest manifestation. Here we are reporting the case report on Bradycardia following saw scaled viper bite for the first time. It has occurred after 72 hours and recovered with isoprenaline.
