Bee stings are observed quite frequently all over the world [1]. A wide variety of symptoms and clinical manifestations can occur after a bee sting. Local reactions at the bite site are common and self-limiting. Pain, itching, urticaria, swelling, edema and redness are common local reactions. Uncommonly manifestations like tongue, soft palate and eyelid swelling, cough, dyspnea, nausea, vomiting, stomachache, diarrhea, generalized edema, anaphylactic shock, hypotension, multiple organ failure, vasculitis, serum sickness, neuritis and meningoensefalitis may occur [2]. We report a case of a 27-year-old male who developed right sided hemiparesia and disphasia following multiple bee stings.
