Resumo

The human envenomation by Lachesis snakes is quite severe, characterized by pronounced local tissue damage and systemic effects, such as hypotension and bradycardia, dizziness, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. The only specific therapy available is the serum therapy. The antiophidic action is attributed to many plants. Here in Brazil, specially in the north and northeast regions, the juice and aqueous extract of soursop leaves (Annona muricata) are often used by local population to treat Lachesis muta envenoming.
