In the case of an intravenous mercury injection, the mercury can be seen in the right heart, the lungs, the liver, and the kidney, but seldom in the spleen, the extremities, and the vertebral canal. In the subsequent period there is a distribution of the mercury and clinical symptoms will show the toxicity of the metal. We describe a patient with a follow-up time of 19 years, from the radiological point of view.
