Abstract

Objective: To present a case of organic arsenic intoxication after consumption of bird's nest soup in a Vietnamese patient. Method: We have described the clinical picture of a patient with organic arsenic intoxication, and high levels of urine arsenic after consumption of bird's nest soup. Result: Withdrawal of bird's nest soup coincided with a decrease in urinary arsenic levels and the disappearance of peripheral neuropathy. Conclusion: This case illustrates the environmental contamination of bird's nest soup with organic arsenic. A prompt removal of the source from the diet resulted in clinical improvement.
