  • Kids - more likely to partially sample single mushrooms, less likely to eat a significant amount <br /> Magic Mushrooms - Psilocybin <br />
  • 1 Mushroom potentially deadly <br /> 3 mushrooms mortality ~ 80% <br />
  • 10 Patients - 7 were recent immigrants or visitors <br /> 8 hepatotoxicity 4 died <br /> Natural Selection ... with low P volumes <br />
  • GI Toxicity - Vomiting with Severe Diarrhoea (like Cholera) <br /> The earlier the GI Sx, or the higher the lactate the worse the toxicity <br />
  • Transported by OATP 1B3 and Na Taurocholate co-transporter <br /> Does not appear to cross placenta <br />
  • Specific Ix: LFTs 18-24/24 post ingestion <br /> Meixner Test: conc HCl onto newspaper (contains lignin) - blue colour <br /> NB: +ve for psilocybin as well <br /> Rx Charcoal - best evidence for reduction in mortality, not specifically stated <br />
  • In vitro studies using cultured human hepatocytes <br /> Systematic review + observational study - less effective if commenced &gt; 24/24 post ingestion <br />
  • Less effective than Silibinin in vitro studies <br />
  • Systematic review: mortality 6.8% vs 11.6% average <br />

BCC4 Tzannes - Seemed like a good idea at the time: Mushroom Poisoning Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Mushroom Poisoning Anthony Tzannes
  • 2. Mushroom Poisoning Anthony Tzannes
  • 3. It seemed like a Good Idea at the Time...
  • 4. What is Important? Phone a friend Common presentations Amanita phalloides Diagnosis Management
  • 5. Presentations Often eat multiple mushrooms GI Sx most common - usually within 2-3/24 Toxin not clear Kids vs Adults “Magic Mushrooms”
  • 6. Key Questions Number mushrooms ingested by how many people? Time since ingestion Time onset GI Sx + period of Sx Location (Canberra/SA/Vic) ?Near Oak trees Risk for simple gastroenteritis
  • 7. Amanita phalloides Very similar to safe mushrooms High risk populations...
  • 8. Clinical Features Delayed GI toxicity (6-24/24) with severe fluid losses from Cholera-like diarrhoea Hepatorenal toxicity from 18-36/24 Often minimal Sx “Honeymoon Period” Progressive Hepatic Failure from 36-96/24 often with associated hepatorenal syndrome and pancreatitis
  • 9. Toxinokinetics Amatoxins - particularly alpha-amatoxin H2O insoluble, heat stable - not safe post parboiling Absorbed from GI tract, transported to Liver Actively transported into hepatocytes Binds to RNA polymerase Type II Halts protein synthesis Organs with rapid cell turnover - GI, Prox tubules
  • 10. Treatment Fluids for GI Sx Important Questions Ongoing Fluids/BSL control Screening + Specific Charcoal MDAC +/- Plasmapheresis Start within 24/24 (if possible) Transplant after 4/7 Resus R S I D E A D
  • 11. Silibinin Loading: 5mg/kg iv over 1/24 Infusion 20mg/kg/day for 3/7 Blocks hepatocyte uptake of amatoxin OATP 1B3 + Na Taurocholate Can use Silymarin po if Silibinin not available approx 10g/day NB: Side Fx Diarrhoea + +
  • 12. Penicillin 1 000 000u/kg/day Blocks amatoxin uptake OATP 1B3 May decrease effectiveness of Silibinin... (Ceftazidime 4.5g q2h)
  • 13. NAC Same dosing as for paracetamol 150mg/kg load (15-60 min) 50mg/kg over 4/24 100mg/kg over 16/24 then repeat... Glutathione magic...
  • 14. What doesn’t work Fab - increased renal toxicity Dialysis/Charcoal Haemoperfusion - doesn’t clear the toxin effectively Thioctic Acid - no benefit
  • 15. Six Point Plan Call a friend Charcoal Good supportive care Silybinin +/- Penicillin NAC Stop the boats
