Several new mushroom poisoning syndromes have been described since the early 1990s. In these syndromes, the onset of symptoms generally occurs >6 hours after ingestion. Treatment is mainly supportive. The syndrome induced by Amanita smithiana/proxima consists of acute tubulopathy, which appears earlier and does not have the same poor prognosis as the orellanine-induced syndrome. It has been described since 1992 in the US and Canada with A. smithiana; in France, Spain and Italy with A. proximo… 
Amanita smithiana mushroom ingestion: A case of delayed renal failure and literature review
TLDR
Amanita smithiana mushroom poisoning presents within 6 hours of ingestion with GI toxicity, and develops delayed onset of renal insufficiency over the first 1 to 4 days, a pattern of delayed-onset renal toxic mushroom ingestion is emerging among mushroom ingestions in Western North America.
A Case of Mushroom Poisoning with Russula subnigricans: Development of Rhabdomyolysis, Acute Kidney Injury, Cardiogenic Shock, and Death
TLDR
This report represents the first record of R. subnigricans poisoning with rhabdomyolytic mushroom poisoning in Korea, describing a 51-year-old man who suffered from rhabDomyolysis, acute kidney injury, severe hypocalcemia, respiratory failure, ventricular tachycardia, cardiogenic shock, and death.
Acute Hepatorenal Failure in a Patient Following Consumption of Mushrooms: A Case Report
TLDR
The patient was poisoned by A. phalloides complaining gastrointestinal symptoms including nausea; vomiting and watery diarrhea about six hours after consumption and then, amatoxin in the mushroom caused damage to hepatocytes and renal cells and finally led to hepatorenal failure.

Toxic Potential of Traditionally Consumed Mushroom Species—A Controversial Continuum with Many Unanswered Questions
TLDR
This review focuses on existing data about these types of mushroom poisonings, including the still sparse knowledge about the causative chemical agents, to initiate a meta-discussion about the issue and to give some suggestions about how to approach the situation from the viewpoint of the collector, the researcher, and the practicing physician.
Non-drug-induced nephrotoxicity
TLDR
Clinical features of nephrotoxicity induced by ‘atypical’ or ‘unconventional’ agents, such as environmental agents, food agents, drug agents, dietary supplements, melamine, drugs, and other products are reviewed.
STRMĚLKY, RIZIKOVÉ HOUBY
TLDR
It appears that poisonous properties of Clitocybe mushrooms are caused by complex effect of numerous p isonous substances, some of them act as lathrotoxins, others as neuro toxins.
Erythromelalgia associated with Clitocybe acromelalga intoxication
TLDR
It is believed that this painful disorder might thus be treatable, although the mechanism underlying the treatment remains unclear, and treatment with intravenous nicotinic acid was associated with improvement in one patient.

[Acute renal insufficiency caused by Amanita proxima poisoning: experience of the Poison Center of Marseille].
TLDR
The severity of symptoms seems to be dose-dependent: cases in the same family with no signs after just tasting the meal, digestive symptoms only when patients at more, and renal failure for the hungry people.
Renal failure caused by mushroom poisoning.
TLDR
Four cases of renal failure have occurred following ingestion of wild mushrooms in which toxic mushrooms were mistaken for the edible pine mushroom or matsutake, suggesting that the mushroom involved may also be Amanita smithiana which contains nephrotoxic compounds.

TLDR
4 patients who presented in acute renal failure and who ingested mushrooms described as resembling A. smithiana underwent acute hemodialysis for at least several weeks, eventually returning to baseline renal function.
Wild-mushroom intoxication as a cause of rhabdomyolysis.
TLDR
The growing popularity of eating wild mushrooms has led to an increase in the incidence of mushroom poisoning, and 12 cases of delayed rhabdomyolysis have occurred in France after meals that included large quantities of the edible wild mushroom Tricholoma equestre.
Suspected Myotoxicity of Edible Wild Mushrooms
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that the previously observed toxic effects are not specific to T. flavovirens, but probably represent an unspecific response requiring individual sensitivity and a significant amount of ingested mushroom to manifest itself.

TLDR
The present study suggests that this endemic disease is a newly recognized clinical entity of encephalopathy in Yamagata prefecture, and suggests that the degree of renal failure is a key for the prognosis of this type ofEncephalopathy.

TLDR
Patients with chronic kidney diseases are at risk of having serious encephalopathy following Sugihiratake ingestion and must refrain from eating this mushroom and should be aware of this complication.
