Abstract

We report a case of cupric sulfate intoxication complicated by hemolytic anemia, hepato-renal damage and acute rhabdomyolysis. The patient was successfully treated with dimercaprol, penicillamine, direct hemoperfusion and hemodiafiltration. We discuss the pathophysiology of cupric intoxication, and propose a treatment combined with chelating agents and blood purification.
