Disease relevance of Mushroom Poisoning


High impact information on Mushroom Poisoning

  • Amanita mushroom poisoning with recovery from coma: a case report [2].
  • A few compounds such as acetaminophen, CCl4 and the toxin responsible for mushroom poisoning are toxic themselves or produce metabolites which cause liver injury in a uniform, dose-dependent fashion [3].
  • Based on the classes of toxins and their clinical symptoms, seven different types of mushroom poisoning can be distinguished: (1) phalloides, (2) orellanus, (3) gyromitra, (4) muscarine, (5) pantherina, (6) psilocybin, and (7) gastrointestinal mushroom syndrome [4].
  • "Mushroom" poisoning has rarely been reported in Australia. We present six cases of Amanita preissii poisoning successfully treated with atropine sulphate [5].
  • RESULTS: We identified 15,497 patients with acute poisoning in our retrospective study, 4,005 of whom presented poisoning associated with hypoglycemic risk (40% acute ethanol poisoning, 29% wild mushroom poisoning, 23% beta-blocker poisoning, 7% salicylate poisoning and 1% patients with anti-diabetic agents acute poisoning) [6].

Chemical compound and disease context of Mushroom Poisoning

  • One hundred and forty-three cases (89 women and 54 men) of mushroom poisoning recorded at the emergency service of Osmangazi University Hospital, Faculty of Medicine, between 1996 and 2000 were evaluated [7].

Gene context of Mushroom Poisoning

  • METHODS: We describe the first series in the literature (also first MARS treatments in Romania) with ALF because of mushroom poisoning in children (M/F=2/4, age=7-16 years) [8].
