A case of an infant with diarrhea and acidosis associated with methemoglobinemia is presented. Of interest is that the association of diarrhea and acidosis with methemoglobinemia is more common than previously thought and can produce dangerously high methemoglobin levels. A review of the literature of this unusual occurrence along with clues to making the diagnosis are discussed.
