Snake bites are common medical emergencies, especially in the tropical regions. The manifestations vary, depending on the species that has caused envenomation. Most often, the victim walks in with the chief complaint of pain at the local site and history of a snake bite. However, in a few instances, it may so happen that the bite goes unnoticed, and the victim may present with secondary manifestations. We report an interesting case of bleeding gums, which on investigation turned out to be due to a snake bite.
