Review of the clinical use of intravenous mannitol with ciguatera fish poisoning from 1988 to 1992.Bull Soc Pathol Exot. 1992; 85(5 Pt 2):423-4.BS
Intravenous mannitol was introduced as an effective treatment for ciguatera in 1988. Clinicians have used intravenous mannitol with success in several geographic areas. However, there remains a general skepticism and reluctance to use mannitol to treat ciguatera amongst clinicians. The possible reasons for the clinician's reluctance to use intravenous mannitol to treat ciguatera are reviewed.
