    This report describes the case of an 18 year old female who sustained a jellyfish sting on her right wrist. She subsequently developed complete radial, ulnar and median nerve palsies distal to the site of the sting, which recovered fully over the next 10 months. We believe this to be due to a direct neurotoxic effect of the jellyfish venom.
