Amatoxins are the sole cause of human Amanita poisoning, inhibition of transcription eventually leading to cell necrosis. The toxins are easily excreted into the bile fluid, a fact which postulates the interruption of the enterohepatic circulation. All therapeutic means should be applied in order to decrease the serum concentration of the toxins as soon as possible.
