When ingested with alcohol, certain drugs (e.g. cephalosporins, sulfonylurea, metronidazole, griseofulvin, chloramphenicol), calcium cyanamide, dimethyl formamide and certain mushrooms cause a disulfiram-alcohol type reaction. Three cases of a disulfiram-alcohol type reaction after ingestion of Boletus luridus and alcohol are described. No serious symptoms were observed. In contrast to Coprinus atramentarius, the toxin of Boletus luridus is unknown. 
Poisoning by Coprinus atramentarius.
