Mangrove horseshoe crab
Les vietnamiens sont friants de fruits de mer en tout genre. Certains crabes des mangroves peuvent pourtant être à l'origine de graves réactions toxiques secondaires à l'ingestion d'une toxine appelée "tétrodotoxine".
Carcinoscorpius Rotundicauda
Le Dr Tan rapporte ici le cas d'une homme de 65 ans victime d'une intoxication grave survenue quelques heures après avoir mangé une variété de "crabes" des mangroves appelée "Carcinoscorpius Rotondicauda".

Frequent occurrence of the tetrodotoxin-bearing horseshoe crab Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda in Vietnam

TetrodotoxineTetrodotoxin (TTX) was detected by HPLC and LC-MS/MS in specimens of the horseshoe crab Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda collected from Tan Hai village, Vung Tau province, Vietnam, where cases of poisoning due to the consumption of horseshoe crab have frequently been reported. The soft tissue from 10 out of the 12 specimens analyzed showed considerable levels of TTX, making them unsafe for human consumption (81.2 ± 50.3 MU/g). Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) toxins were also detected in all of the specimens, but the levels were low. These findings show that the frequency of occurrence of C. rotundicauda specimens with a high level of TTX is significantly high, and that the TTX is responsible for the food poisonings caused by the consumption of C. rotundicauda in this area.
