  • Methanol Poisoning

    Pupillary abnormality was observed in all. Edema of the optic disc and nerve fiber layer were common fundus findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a 50-year-old woman with accidental methanol intoxication who was in a vegetative state.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Progressive vision loss is characteristic for MP and patients may claim blurred vision, scotomas, scintillations, visual field restriction and eventually complete blindness[symptoma.com]

  • Botulism

    In the lower 49 states, a noncommercial food item was implicated in 70 (91%) events, most commonly home-canned vegetables (44%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It often begins with feelings of weakness and loss of muscle tone that spread through the body.[healthychildren.org] When botulism outbreaks occur, they are usually linked to home-canned food, particularly low-acid vegetables such as beets, corn, asparagus and green beans.[foodsafetynews.com]
