Abstract

Acute and chronic toxicities from exposure to heavy metals are uncommon but pose significant morbidity and mortality if unrecognized. Diagnosis of heavy metal poisoning is based on incorporating clinical presentation (history and physical findings) with history of exposure in the presence of elevated body burden of the particular heavy metal. The key to managing heavy metal intoxication is the removal from offending exposure and the reduction of total body burden.
