Epidemiological study of sea snakebite victims of Kyaikkami Township (Mon State)

Epidemiological study of sea snakebite victims of Kyaikkami Township (Mon State)

Myanmar Health Sciences Research Journal 17(1): 32-35

An earlier community-based epidemiological study of sea snake bites highlights that its prevalence based on hospital statistics is grossly underestimated and possible influence of fishing technique on its prevalence.
