Hi all. Newbie here so I apologize if I post in the wrong place. I was wondering if there is a national or state level database of documented poisonous spider bites. I have a friend who claims that he knew someone in the pittsburgh PA area that was bitten by a brown recluse and fell into a coma. The spider was found so I would say this is a documented case but i'd like to confirm it. I know that BR's are not endemic to PA so this is a VERY rare case I am sure, so there must be some documentation somewhere about it. Thanks for your help!
