Abstract

Extracts from the Colchicum autumnale plant have been used to treat gout since the sixth century, and many instances of accidental or intentional overdose have been reported. Although a clinical syndrome due to acute colchicine intoxication is wellknown, we know of no reports of its occurrence while a patient was taking usual prophylactic doses. The following case study may be the first reported example of such an event.
