Snake bite continues to be one of the major and potential contributors for morbidity and mortality in India. Intracranial haemorrhage causing neurological deficits is a known entity due to snake bite but presentation with infarction is rare. The authors report a case of a healthy middle aged female who presented within hours of envenomation with altered sensorium and evaluation revealed left hemiplegia with deranged coagulation profile and multiple ischaemic infarcts instead of haemorrhage as a consequence of vasculotoxic envenomation due to viper bite.
