[Voluntuary stramonium poisoning. 2 clinical cases].
Minerva Med. 1978 Mar 10; 69(12):763-7.MM

Abstract

Two cases of acute voluptuary poisoning by infusions of dry leaves of stramonium are reported. Symptomatology was characterized by confusion and hallucination (visual hallucinations, loss of space-time relationships, etc.) associated with neurovegetal symptomatology ascribable to the active principles contained in the preparation used: mydriasis, disturbances in visual accomodation, dryness of the fauces. Tachycardia was observed in one case, bradycardia in the other. Symptoms were resolved in one case by administration of neuroleptics, and spontaneously in the other after about 12 hours. A brief description of the preparation employed is given, and risk of poisoning stressed.
