Stroke and kidney failure due to wasp attack, can it?
They then explained that the sting of the Wasp also led to an irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation). A person experiencing this is at risk of stroke because the condition caused the blood to be unpumped to the whole body well. Walresults, blobs are easily formed and cause strokes when walking towards the brain. On the other hand, Kulhari, et al explained a severe allergic reaction because the wasp stings make blood pressure down. When a person has very low blood pressure (hypotension) then the blood flowing in the vessels in the brain is not enough, causing a stroke. Related to the case of the man above, the first cause is the blood vessels narrowed by the wasp.

According to Sanjay Vikran and Anupam Parashar in "Two Cases of Acute Kidney Injury Due to Multiple Wasp Sting" (2017), poison wasps can cause Accute Kidney Injury (AKI). Further, they said the AKI emerged due to the combination of disseminated hemolysis, rhabdomyolysis, shock, and toxic effects in blood vessels. Intravascular hemolysis is interpreted as abnormal deterioration of red blood cells or erythrocytes that occur in the blood vessels. Meanwhile, rhabdomyolysis refers to the condition where a person's skeletal muscle tissue is damaged due to the death of muscle fibers and the discharge of fiber content in the blood. The content of the fiber is a myoglobin formed from amino acids and polyferrin. Myoglobin is a protein that serves as a storage of oxygen in muscles. If the excess blood of myoglobin, the kidney works increasingly severe. As a result, patients with rhabdomyolysis experienced AKI or acute renal failure. According to WebMD, Rhabdomyolysis can appear due to insect bites or snakes. In addition, these conditions can arise due to lightning strikes, third level burns, durable muscle compression, or accidents. Sanjay and Anumpam say that the case of an AKI due to wasp stings is rare. Based on their studies, AKI is experienced by the victims of the wasp as much as 20 to 200 times. According to K. Ito, et al in "Rhabdomyolysis due to Multiply Wasp Stings" (2012), the poison of wasps contains components of active amines (serotonin and histamine substances), kinin, and histamine that cause harmful systemic reactions. Such responses include hemolysis, rhabdomyolysis, and renal failure.
