Cocaine abuse is increasing, particularly among young people. It is no longer a drug used exclusively by higher socio-economic groups. This review highlights the dangers of both acute and chronic cocaine abuse and its lethal potential even on the first encounter. The systemic effects of cocaine are described along with the possible pathology that may present itself to the attending clinician.
