Pediatric Emergency Care, 08/17/2012
Brannan EH et al. – The authors discuss a case of mercury intoxication in a 3–year–old girl presenting with hypertension and acrodynia, without a known history of exposure. Chelation therapy successfully treated the patient’s mercury intoxication. However, it was also necessary to concurrently treat her hypertension and the pain associated with her acrodynia.
