Abstract: 
Tityus trivittatus is the scorpion of highest medical importance in Argentina. It is present in the majority of the big cities of the country favouring the contact man – scorpion due its characteristic of adapting to live in human constructions and environments. In recent years, both the number of scorpion sighting reports, as well the number of envenomings increased in the country. We undertook this study to determine if the population of Tityus trivittatus has expanded its geographical area during the last decade in the city of Buenos Aires and whether or not there has also been an increase in the frequency of envenoming cases within the affected geographical areas.
