          Abstract

          In 1956, the Brazilian government brought honeybees (Apis mellifera andansonii) from South Africa. A group of these bees crossed the Amazon and reached Venezuela where they have killed between 30 and 50 people in the last 4 years [1]. In 1993, we observed the first case of rhabdomyolysis, hepatic dysfunction and acute renal failure (ARF) following multiple stings by African bees (A. mellifera andansonii) in French Guiana.
