Condition: Mushroom poisoning



DESCRIPTION: About 100 species of mushrooms are poisonous to humans, and 15-20 mushroom species are lethal when ingested. No simple rule exists for distinguishing edible mushrooms from poisonous mushrooms. In more than 95% of mushroom toxicity (mushroom poisoning) cases, poisoning occurs as a result of misidentification of the mushroom by an amateur mushroom hunter. In fewer than 5% of the cases, poisoning occurs after the mushroom is consumed for its mind-altering properties. Early symptoms of mushroom poisoning include nausea, stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhea (which is sometimes bloody). Symptoms may show up right after the mushroom was eaten or may appear several hours later. Typically, mushrooms that produce symptoms within 2 hours are less dangerous than mushrooms that produce symptoms later (after 6 hours).
