Books on clinical toxicology are usually either pocket-sized manuals offering quick and easy reference to doctors treating acutely poisoned patients, or enormous tomes of information, much of it not directly relevant to the clinician and often out of touch with current management. Barceloux’s Medical toxicology of natural substances breaks out of that mould. This book is the first of a series of four major textbooks replacing Ellenhorn’s Medical toxicology, reflecting the rapid growth in clinical toxicology and its evidence base over the past decade. Planned further volumes cover recreational, occupational, and pharmaceutical poisoning.
