Abstract

BACKGROUND: TO describe characteristics of acute poisoning with liquid ecstasy (gammahydroxybutyrate, GHB). PATIENTS AND METHOD: Epidemiological and clinical data of patients with acute GHB poisoning seen at emergency department (ED) along one year were collected. RESULTS: 22 patients were included. Typical profile corresponds to a youngmale, who consults on weekend, at night, complaining of a marked decreasedlevel of conciousness. Patients refer coingestion of other drugs and tipically regain conciousness spontaneously in a short time. CONCLUSION: The frequency of GHB poisoning has increased notably in our environment. GHB poisoning must be considered on the differential diagnostic of coma of unknown origin in young patients attended in ED.
