Abstract

Organ toxicity caused by poisons or drug therapy is diverse and may not be commonly encountered clinically. In general, commonly encountered conditions caused by drug/toxin pharmacology can be classified into 7 categories by shared mechanisms of organ injury. This review of drug/toxin-induced injury discusses drug or toxin-induced pathology that the clinician may encounter and therapeutic approaches to these syndromes.
