Abstract:

Plant poisonings are rare in Denmark, but can have fatal consequences. We present a case in which a woman went into cardiac arrest after having ingested leaves from the foxglove plant. Sinus rhythm was not restored until Digibind was administered. Literature in this field is sparse, but we conclude that the following advice can be given: 1) assessment of the degree of poisoning should be based on clinical features and changes of the electrocardiogram; 2) activated charcoal should be given; 3) in case of malignant arrhythmia or cardiac arrest, the use of Digibind should be considered.
