Bee stings are common accidents in day to day life .They can cause local and systemic allergic reactions, rarely vasculitis, serum sickness, neuritis and encephalitis have been described which generally develop days to weeks after a sting, neurological complications are rare. There are few reports of ischemic stroke following bee stings. We report a 60-yearold healthy man developed a focal neurologic deficit 3 hours after multiple bee stings, which was confirmed to be an acute ischemic stroke on computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.
