Picadura de una araña reclusa parda en la mano

Esta lesión fue producida por la picadura de una araña reclusa parda, uno de los dos tipos de arañas comunes en los Estados Unidos que se considera venenosa (la otra es la viuda negra). Sin embargo, la araña vagabunda, la araña lobo y la araña saltadora también producen picaduras que requieren atención médica.
