Hymenoptera stings can cause serious injury to humans. We report the clinical findings of 6 cases of Hyme-noptera stings. All patients developed painful erythematous papules at the sting sites and had a past history of parasitoid wasp sting. This is the first clinical report of the parasitoid wasp, Cephalonomia gallicola, causing human stings in Korea.
