  • The events associated with the death of Gloria Ramirez at Riverside General Hospital on 19 February 1994 have been portrayed as a major medical mystery. [...] Key Result The descriptions of the symptoms of the hospital-staff victims appear quite consistent with dimethyl sulfate exposures. This paper attempts to make some sense of the reported data and eyewitness accounts, and perhaps provide new insight for any future research that could further explain this reported occurrence of toxic exposure.Expand Abstract
