 The poison of pit viper (Agkistrodon blomhoffu) contains many kinds of toxins that have hemolytic and coagulant toxic effects. The severe complications of viper envenomation include acute renal failure and rhabdomyolysis, and coagulation disorder leading to disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Both the coagulation disorder and the ischemic change of the intestinal wall may be responsible for hemorrhagic complications in the gastrointestinal tract.
