Aim: The literature on scolopendrism in the Adriatic coast is scarce. In this paper we present two patients (age fourteen and thirty one) with scolopendrism caused by Scolopendra cingulata. Case report: The first patient was bitten on the big toe of the right foot which occured on the ground floor of the family house while patient was putting on running shoes. The second patient was bitten on the third finger of the left hand while at work putting on working gloves. The local symptoms were burning pain along the extremities, redness, swolen skin and spasm of thigh muscles. Nausea was the only systemic symptom noticed. Symptomatic therapy was applied (analgetics and tranquilisators). After 3 to 6 days all symptoms disappeared. Conclusions: Scolopendra cingulata represents a real danger for the health of the local population and tourists on the Adriatic coast. The therapy of this type of scolopendrism is only symptomatic. This paper provides the first detailed symptoms description of scolopendrism on the Montenegrian coast.
