The poison contained on the skin and in the glands of the Bufonidae has a digital is toxicity and carries a high mortality. Toad venom was considered responsible for the development of severe clinical manifestations such as vomiting, diarrhea, neurological disorders and arrhythmias. If not readily recognized by the clinician, this type of intoxication can be fatal. Prompt treatment with digoxin specific Fab fragment antibodies may be lifesaving in the treatment of toad venom poisoning. This case report alerts physicians to the need to be aware of this rare toxin.
