Emetine identified in urine by HPLC, with fluorescence and ultraviolet/diode array detection, in a patient with cardiomyopathy.

A 15-year-old girl with a four-month history of cardiac failure from undetermined cause was admitted to the hospital with weakness, fatigue, and weight loss. During her hospitalization she was found to have abused diet aids, laxatives, and cathartics. Although an electrocardiogram revealed nonspecific T-wave abnormalities and laboratory studies showed supranormal enzyme test results for creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase, no definite explanation of the cardiomyopathy was forthcoming. Ipecac abuse leading to cardiomyopathy was suspected early in the hospitalization. HPLC analysis of a urine sample showed emetine, a principle component of ipecac, the presence of which was later confirmed by more-specific HPLC analysis with photodiode array detection.[1]
