Abstract

Despite its frequent use in industry, acute poisoning by chromic acid has very rarely been reported. We report a patient who developed massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage, acute renal failure, and hepatic injury following chromic acid ingestion, and subsequently died. Postmortem liver and kidney biopsies revealed centrilobular necrosis and severe acute tubular necrosis, respectively.
