Determination of mercury in urine, with results in cases of pink disease

, : Determination of mercury in urine, with results in cases of pink disease. Medical Journal of Australia 42(11): 411-414

A simple and accurate direct extraction method for the determination of Hg in urine is described. The digestion procedure is based on Hubbard's sulfuric acid-permanganate reagent and on experimental data of interference from digestion reagents and their products. A technique for the digestion of urine samples of high protein content is described. Experimental studies reveal that, under the conditions used, trace amounts of Cu present in the urine digests are not co-extracted, irrespective of the amount of Hg present. The direct-extraction technique is not recommended for the estimation of Hg in tissues, gastric contents et cetera. The conflicting reports of interference by Cl ions can be explained, at least in part, in terms of shaking times. Results of estimation of Hg excretion in the urine of patients with pink disease (acrodynia) are reported.
