Abstract

Utilizing a panel of immune complex assays, antigen‐antibody complex formation in a 29‐year‐olcl man shortly after a spider bite was documented. The clinical picture and laboratory parameters were consistent with a serum sickness reaction. Immune hyperacticivity was evidenced by a detectable autoimmune serological response. This constellation of findings may be a common attendant to arthropod envenomation.
