Toxidromes

The term toxidrome refers to the collection of signs and symptoms that are observed after an exposure to a substance (a toxic "fingerprint"). Toxidromes include grouped, physiologically based abnormalities of vital signs, general appearance, skin, eyes, mucous membranes, lungs, heart, abdomen, and neurologic examination that are known for many substances and typically helpful in establishing a diagnosis when the exposure is not well defined ( T.a.ble.,J.,51:.2). Similarly, certain clinical findings may narrow the etiologic possibilities (Table 1,51-3).
