Background: Snakebite can cause a galaxy of neurological symptoms sometimes in combination with hematotoxic features. Case Report: We report a 13 year old boy who was accidentally bitten by a common krait. Initial presentation showed evidence of neurotoxicity and paralysis which was managed as per current guidelines and the patient showed immediate response and clinical improvement only to develop delayed neurotoxicity and hematotoxicity with deterioration after initial response. However, the patient could be managed with available medical care and discharged in a stable condition. Conclusion: Such bizarre manifestations of neurotoxicity due to two different etiology in single krait bite is extremely rare and will add to the knowledge of existing literature.
