AbstractAbstract PDF
Diagostic imaging can help in management of toxicologic emergencies. We report a patient who presented to the emergency department with coma and suppressed respiration after ingestion of unknown substance. We documented chloroform with radiopaque material in bowel on abdominal radiograph. We used activated charcoal and laxative to decontaminate bowel. Hepatotoxicity occurred on 3rd admission day and elevation of liver enzyme reached peak level on 5th admission day. The patient received hemoperfusion, N-acetylsystein and supportive cares. The patient was improved from hepatic dysfunction and discharged without complication on 11th admission day. Radiograph in toxicology may confirm a diagnosis and assist in therapeutic intervention.
