Snake-bite injuries are uncommon events but a significant number of cases are reported from rural areas. The basic principles of diagnosis and management of snake-bite injuries should be known to rural practitioners and prompt referral should be done in selected cases. The extremity bite may occasionally result in localized cellulitis and soft tissue infection that may complicate later into underlying bone invilement. Dislocation following the open wound in these setting is rare occurrence that needs proper knowledge for its diagnosis and management.
