Monday morning an elderly man presented to the OPD after being stung by hundreds of bees. His face was extremely swollen and his voice was hoarse. Fortunately, he had no difficulties with swallowing or breathing. After removing a large number of stingers from his face and arms we admitted him and gave him some IV steroids. Within a few hours his swelling was significantly reduced and he was able to return home the next day.
