Star fruit (Averrhoa carambola) intoxication: an important cause of consciousness disturbance in patients with renal failure.
Ren Fail. 2002 May; 24(3):379-82.RF

Abstract

Star fruit intoxication is a rare cause of consciousness disturbance in patients with renal failure. Most cases in the literature are uremic patients on maintenance dialysis. We present a patient with chronic renal failure, who was not on dialysis program yet, suffered from star fruit intoxication with presentation of consciousness disturbance and successfully managed by a session of hemodialysis.
