Abstract

Acute liver failure from abuse of volatile substances is not usual. We encountered a case involving a 27-yearold man with acute liver and kidney failure followed by severe brain edema, probably caused by abuse of glue containing trichloroethylene. The clinical course was observed from the fi rst day, when serum transaminases were normal, until death on day 12. The trichloroethylene metabolite trichloroacetate was detected in his urine.
