Caption

Spider bite. The hand of a 60-year-old female patient who was bitten on the little finger by a false black widow spider (Steatoda nobilis). The symptoms of a bite from this species are similar to a bee or wasp sting, with temporary pain and swelling, but are sometimes accompanied by feverishness and malaise. See C037/0966 for the finger five days later.
