Publication Date
  • Research Article


Solvent abuse in adolescents and young adults has been reported to cause a metabolic acidosis with a normal or increased anion gap (Streicher et al., 1981; Voights & Kaufman, 1983, Anonymous, 1988). We report a particularly severe clinical problem produced by the combination of toluene intoxication and diabetic ketoacidosis.
