Jequirity Bean Abrus precatorius

Jequirity beans contain the toxalbumin abrin, one of the most lethal naturally occurring toxins known. 5 Children have died as a result of chewing alone (without swallowing) the beans. Chewing and swallowing just one bean may be lethal to an adult. Symptoms include a delayed gastroenteritis, which may be severe and hemorrhagic, followed by delirium, seizures, coma, and death. Like castor bean, recovery of the intact bean by WBI is preferred. Patients should be observed for at least 8 to 12 h. Treatment is otherwise supportive, with attention to fluid replacement and monitoring of electrolytes.
