Death is generally the result of cardiac asystole [162, 163]. C. fleckeri anti-venom, obtained by hyperimmunization from sheep, has been widely available since the 1970s and is produced by the Commonwealth Serum Laboratory (Melbourne, Australia) [153, 161]. However, it must be administered very soon after the event. Indications for anti-venom include cardiorespiratory arrest, arrhythmias, and difficulty in breathing, severe pain, or extensive skin lesions. Chiropsalmus quadrigatus is very common in Australia, the Philippines, Japan, the Indo-Pacific Ocean, North America and the Caribbean seas [26].

Its usual habitat is tropical and temperate waters between the 23rd and the 42nd south parallel of latitude [111]. It is particularly common along the coasts of the Mar del Plata and in the Blanca Bay area to the south of Buenos Aires. Patch tests with crude extract of the nematocysts were positive in a subject who had developed a more serious skin reaction only after repeated exposure with slight symptoms.
