Ethylene Glycol Poisoning
One evening in December 2015, a 34-year-old male came home from a night out with his friend. His mother claimed at the time her son was sober, physical and mental status were not altered. Next morning she found him in a living room agitated, restless and disoriented. Ambulance transported him to a hospital: on an emergency admission, he was soporous and had metabolic acidosis with an anion gap, hypercalcemia and slightly increased urea (5.3 mmol/L) and creatinine (126 μmol/L) levels, while CT of the brain was unremarkable (Fig. 10.1).
