Methoxyflurane hepatitis.

Abstract

A veterinarian's assistant who sniffed methoxyflurane as a euphoriant developed fulminant hepatitis and died of hepatic failure. The abuse of fluorinated anesthetics has been reported and may be more frequent than is commonly believed. It is suggested that fluorinated anesthetics should be considered as a causative agent in a case of fulminant hepatitis, especially in patients who have easy access to such drugs.
