Aphrodisiac drug-induced hemolysis.


PMID 15362601

Abstract

Volatile alkyl nitrites have been used during the past decades for "recreational purposes," and for intensifying sexual experience. Their use has been associated with methemoglobinemia and hemolysis. We report three patients who presented over the past year with acute hemolysis after inhalation of butyl nitrite, two of them had glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency.
