  author={Tien- Hsu and Chi-Wen Jaun and Chung-Chieh Huang},
Diluted acetic acid in the form of vinegar (5%) is safe for human consumption; however, intake of weakly diluted or undiluted acetic acid can be deadly. A 49-year-old man presented to the emergency department with acute acetic acid intoxication. Results from various tests revealed metabolic acidosis, disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, acute liver dysfunction, acute renal failure, and acute respiratory failure. Upper gastrointestinal panendoscopy revealed third-degree gastrointestinal… 
Severe Renal Function Impairment in Adult Patients Acutely Poisoned with Concentrated Acetic Acid

Dietary methanol and autism.


[Acute oral acetic acid poisoning--case report].
The initiation of therapy led to a rapid improvement in circulation and renal function and underlines the importance of immediate treatment of the haemolysis and detoxification with plasma separation with the immediate substitution of blood and clotting factors.
Acetic acid intoxication by rectal administration.
The enhanced toxicity of acid instilled directly into the rectum, without benefit of dilution and neutralization in the upper intestine, is evident in a case of acetic acid intoxication by accidental
Epidemiology of severe poisonings caused by ingestion of caustic substances.
Seven-years clinical material was evaluated for this study with a total number of 517 patients, hospitalized and treated at the Urgent Internal Medicine and Toxicology Clinic, University Clinical Centre, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, and the dominating patients were female.
Massive noninflammatory periportal liver necrosis following concentrated acetic acid ingestion.
In a fatal occurrence of massive liver necrosis following ingestion of concentrated acetic acid, the patient showed evidence of hemolysis, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and liver dysfunction at only 45 minutes after exposure, despite some improvement of coagulopathy.
[Poisoning with 80% acetic acid].
The patient survived the intoxication by the complex application of hemodialysis and intensive care therapy and led to a brain organic psychosyndrome which reducing cannot be reckoned with.
CT Imaging of Gastric and Hepatic Complications After Ingestion of Glacial Acetic Acid
Wedge-shaped low densities can be seen in the liver on CT scans after ingestion of glacial acetic acid, which may represent hepatic necrosis caused by the direct effect of toxic materials absorbed into portal circulation.
Acid corrosive esophagitis: radiographic findings.
Thirty-nine esophagograms of 24 patients after ingestion of muriatic acid (27% HCI) in suicide attempts were reviewed and found that strictures of the esophagus were present in the chronic phase.
Computed tomography-guided percutaneous acetic acid injection therapy for functioning adrenocortical adenoma.
CT-guided percutaneous acetic acid injection might be a simple, cost-effective, and far less invasive treatment for small functioning adrenocortical adenomas in patients with primary aldosteronism and Cushing's syndrome.
Comparison of percutaneous acetic acid injection and percutaneous ethanol injection for small hepatocellular carcinoma.
Multivariate analysis of prognostic factors revealed that treatment was an independent predictor of survival and per cutaneous acetic acid injection is more effective than percutaneous ethanol injection.
Small hepatocellular carcinoma: safety and efficacy of single high-dose percutaneous acetic acid injection for treatment.
Single high-dose PAI is safe and effective for treatment of small HCC and one patient with preexistent right portal venous thrombosis died of hepatic failure 37 days after PAI.
