Description: Cutaneous injuries by marine animals have a myriad of clinical presentations. Most require only symptomatic treatment, but some may be limb-threatening or even fatal. This is a report of three cases of marine animal injuries by a stingray, a sea anemone and a jellyfish, respectively, illustrating the potential severity of such injuries. The importance of early diagnosis is emphasised, with a discussion on the management of injuries from these three types of marine animals.
