The aim of this study was to examine the effect of scorpionenvenomation on pregnancy outcomes in pregnant women.Methods : The present descriptive/analytical cross-sectional study was performed on 66 scorpionenvenomed pregnant women referred to the clinical toxicology unit of Razi hospital during 2015-2017.After data collection from medical record, the pregnancy outcomes were evaluated. The relationshipbetween pregnancy outcomes and various variables including maternal age, scorpion species, patientresidency, interval time, laboratory disorders, gestational age, fetal/ neonatal complications, sting site,severity of scorpion sting, and maternal complications were determined.Results : The following results were obtained: abortion=1.5% (n=1), stillbirth=4.5% (n=3), pretermbirth=10.6% (n=7), normal birth=83% (n=55).Conclusion : Envenomation significantly contributes to preterm birth.
