Abstract

We describe a case of mercurialism in a thirteen years old boy who presented an erythematous-cyanotic rush on the estremities. Pain was the main symptom and no nervous or psychic alteration was observed. The urinary Hg dosage revealed normal values while the plasmatic and hair levels were increased ten and five fold respectively. Differential diagnosis was made with rheumatoid artritis, chronic urticaria, reflexed nervovascular dystrophy, hand-foot affective deprivation syndrome and essential acrocyanosis.
