Snakebite envenomation is a commonly encountered emergency in tropical countries with potentially fatal complications. Life threatening neurosurgical complications are rare and infrequently documented in literature. We discuss the case of 28-year-old gentleman, managed successfully for an intracerebral haemorrhage following a viper bite and attempt to obviate some management dilemmas often encountered in viperine envenomation.
