Ichthyotoxic ARF after fish gallbladder ingestion: a large case series from Vietnam

, : Ichthyotoxic ARF after fish gallbladder ingestion: a large case series from Vietnam. American Journal of Kidney Diseases 41(1): 220-224

Fish gallbladders are consumed in rural areas of Asia as a traditional medicine to improve symptoms of arthritis, decreased visual acuity, and impotence. Consumption of large amounts of this traditional medicine can result in systemic toxicities; in particular, acute renal failure. We reviewed records of all admissions to Cho Ray Hospital (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam) between January 1995 and December 2000 after this ingestion. Clinical courses and outcomes were similar in 16 of 17 patients.
