Snakebites occur worldwide with varying frequency. Outcomes associated with snakebite are varied and depend on the type of snake and the general health of the patient. We report a case of snakebite by Cerastes cerastes or desert horned viper. Consumptive coagulopathy and cardiotoxicity with electrocardiographic changes complicated the clinical course of the patient. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case in the state of Qatar.
