Özet

Ergotamine toxicity is an important and rare condition, including tachycardia, arterial spasm which occurring as a result of accidental overdosing or drug interactions. We assessed the consequences of delayed diagnosis of peripheral arterial vasoconstriction occurring after simultaneous macrolide use by a 35-year-old woman using an ergot-derived drug for migraine. Diagnosis of ergotamine intoxication begins with suspicion. Interventional radiologists and surgeons should be aware of this acute dangerous condition.
