Exposures and Intoxications after herb-induced poisoning: A retrospective hospital-based study

A retrospective analysis of the plant poisoning over a 12 year period (1995 – 2007) has been carried out, finding that more serious cases occur in adults who either erroneously confused a plant as edible or deliberately ingested a toxic plant.

[Profile of acute poisoning in Italy. Analysis of the data reported by Poison Centres].

Information relative to about 400 000 cases of human intoxications, registered by nine Italian Poison Centres between 1991 and 1998 is presented and the outcome is positive in almost all cases and fatal accidents are not reported in the present casuistry.
