Abstract

We report here three cases of Amanita virosa induced toxic hepatitis. Two of the three cases recovered bur the other died 10 days after mushroom ingestion. Since the mortality of Amanita mushroom induced toxic hepatitis is very high, prompt diagnosis and aggressive therapeutic measures should be initiated as soon as possible. Our cases showed that the initial serum aminotransferase levels might not predict the clinical outcome of the patient, but that the prothrombin time (PT) seemed to be a more useful prognostic marker. Close monitoring of aminotransferase levels and PT us well as appropriate therapy are recommended. All three cases showed signs of proteinuria andwe were able to characterize mixed tubular and glomerular type proteinuriaat 3 or 4 days after ingestion in two cases. Among the previously reportedKorean cases of suspected Amanita induced toxic hepatitis, most species could not be identified except for four cases of Amanita virosa. No cases of Amnanita phalloides induced toxic hepatitis have been identified in Korea so far.
