Abstract

Brake oil is a type of hydraulic fluid used in automobiles. It consists of toxic compounds like ethylene glycol, diethyleneglycol and additives. Brake oil poisoning is rare and it can either be due to intentional or accidental1,2. Toxic manifestations are mainly due to metabolites rather than the compounds in brake oil3,4. Immediate haemodialysis and other supportive carecan improve the outcome of intoxicated patients. Here we present a case report of successful management of a patient presented following brake oil poisoning.
