Honeybee bites have been known to cause localized allergic reactions and anaphylaxis but systemic toxic reactions leading to multiorgan dysfunction is very rare. Serious complications like acute renal failure, acute myocardial infarction (Kounis syndrome) and even death have been reported as the complication of honeybee bite. Herein, we report a case of multiorgan dysfunction following honeybee bite, which was complicated with acute kidney injury, thrombocytopenia, bradycardia, keratitis, and deranged liver function along with localized allergic reaction and pain.
