Return to Brown Recluse Pictures from CDC | Hardin MD : Brown Recluse
Br Recluse 6 *
4 mo. after having been bitten by a brown recluse spider, L. reclusa this patient displayed localized tissue necrosis.
Sometimes a bite from a brown recluse spider can go unnoticed, or maybe feel as slight as a pinprick. However, usually, after 2–8hrs, there is ensuing severe pain, erythema, and localized tissue necrosis due to the venom’s proteolytic enzymes.
