[Ano-cutaneous gangrenous ergotism].

[Article in German]

Abstract

A case of ergotism by abuse of ergotamine tartrate suppositories is reported. The patient developed the clinical picture of ergotism with multiple perianal ulcers. After ergot had been withdrawn there was a spontaneous healing of these ulcers after a few weeks. It is well known that ergot abuse can develop severe vascular spasm in the arteries, but it is unknown that cutaneous ulcers may occur by topical application.
