Abstract

Treatment of human methanol poisoning with the alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitor, 4-methylpyrazole (fomepizole), has not been previously described. We report the clinical and toxicokinetic data of a patient with methanol poisoning who was treated with fomepizole. Formic acid levels remained undetectable during fomepizole treatment, the toxic effects of methanol were prevented, and the patient made a full recovery.
