Abstract

Since published accounts of the effects of Gila monster (Heloderma suspectum Cope) bites are variable and conflicting, due undoubtedly to the many uncontrolled factors involved, it has seemed appropriate to put on record the details of one which was observed under unusually favorable circumstances. In this instance the first author was the patient, or experimental animal, or victim, depending on the point of view, and the second author was the attending physician. They tried to play the additional part of impartial observers, and, if a built-in bias is to be detected, it can be blamed on the difficulty of separating the several roles involved.
