Özet

The aim was to evaluate the clinical findings of patients who admitted to the hospital with the diagnosis of grayanotoxin/mad honey poisoning. Thirty-three patients were included in this study. Three patients were female (9%) and the others male (91%). Median age of patients was 52 (42-68). The most frequently observed findings were sinus bradycardia (91%), nausea-vomiting (81.8%), and dizziness (78.8%). Average heart rate was 55.35 +/- A 6.72 beats/min. Mean systolic and diastolic blood pressures were 77.86 +/- A 16.64 mmHg and 46.42 +/- A 12.30 mmHg, respectively. Mad honey poisoning is an important problem that is life-threatening in the Black Sea region of Turkey.
