Data Source:Data sources from observation studies conducted over the period 1959–2002, and describing 28,018 mushroom poisonings since 1951, were collected from case reports, case series, regional descriptive studies, meta-analyses… 
Worldwide Mushroom Poisoning , Diagnosis and Treatment : Comments on Some of the Recent Research
TLDR
I periodically get questioned about what is being published on mushroom toxicology, and so I have spent some time assembling references to some of the recent papers that provide insight into how diagnoses and treatment of mushroom poisoning is being approached around the world as well as the scope and nature mistakes people are making when attempting to pick edible mushrooms for the table.
Epidemiology and clinics of mushroom poisoning in Northern Italy: A 21-year retrospective analysis

Mushroom poisoning: a retrospective study concerning 11-years of admissions in a Swiss Emergency Department
