Abstract

A case of sultopride poisoning (ingested dose 16 g) in a 35-year-old, 65 Kg man is described. On admission myoclonus, mydriasis, vomiting and cardio-respiratory arrest were observed. Torsades de pointes were treated with potassium chloride infusion and pace maker stimulation. Plasma sultopride concentration was 25 mg/l and urinary concentration 12 g/l. A prolongation of Q-T interval may announce severe arrhythmias in sultopride poisoning.
