Pokeweed poisoning.

Abstract

A 68-year-old man who ingested an improperly prepared extract of pokeweed had sweating, confusion, tremor, weakness, incontinence, and syncope. Analysis of the symptoms from this and similar patients previously reported suggests that the pokeweed plant contains an agent that produces peripheral and central cholinergic stimulation.
