20 ዓመ ወጣት ሴት ቤቷ ተኝታ እያለች በጣም መረዛማ የሆነው እፉኝት መንጋጋ ላይ ነደፋት። ጉሮሮዋም በጣም ስላበጠ ለሦስት ቀናት መተንፈስ ከብዷት ነበር። ዶክተሮች ቀዶ ጥገና እናድርግልሽ ቢሏት አሻፈረኝ አለች። ለ10 ቀናት ያህል በ አንቲባዮቲክስና በስቴሮይድስ ከታከመች በኋላ ወደ ቤቷ ተመልሳለች። መጠሪያ ስሟ አይታወቅም ፎቶዋ ግን ያው ቀርቧል፦

Surviving A Bite From A Viper Is Rare

Regarded as one the world’s deadliest snakes, a lunge from a viper can cause intense pain, convulsions, nausea, and even paralysis, followed by death.

But one Ethiopian woman found herself lucky to escape alive after being bitten by one as she slept, shrugging it off as a dry bite.

She did not seek medical attention, however just three days later, was left fighting for breath after her throat and tongue swelled up rapidly.

In a case that has baffled doctors, the 20-year-old was rushed to hospital where she was eventually told she had caught a bacterial infection from the snake’s mouth.

The unnamed woman, from Ethiopia, was diagnosed with Ludwig’s angina, which makes the sufferer feel like they are being choked or strangled.

Without intervention, patients with Ludwig’s angina have a 50 per cent chance of survival, the report notes.

When a viper bite doesn’t kill, local complications can include pain, death of the surrounding tissue and cellulitis, an infection of the deeper layers of skin.

Ludwig’s Angina, which is a skin infection under the tongue which can rapid lead to airway compromise and death, is an unusual reaction to a snake bite, the doctors note.

‘Contamination from oral flora of the snake could cause secondary wound infection,’ they said.

‘In this case, secondary infection would cause severe soft tissue inflammation and swelling of the neck and later on it would progress to Ludwig’s angina.’
