Wasp stings lead to arthritis

Wasp stings aren’t just painful; they could bring on debilitating arthritis-like symptoms, say US researchers.

The doctors from the University of South Florida report on a case where a man’s psoriatic arthritis was seemingly triggered by multiple wasp stings.

The 46-year-old man with a history of psoriasis but no psoriatic arthritis presented with painful, swollen joints which developed several days after six to eight wasp stings.
