Sorry about a double post but thought it should go here and in the news section.

Wellington: A New Zealand man in intensive care in an Auckland Hpospital faces a liver transplant after eating deadly mushrooms he picked in his garden, it was reported yesterday. His three-year-old son is in stable condition after also eating the so-called "death cap" mushrooms they cooked at their home in Te Aroha on the North Island, dpa.

Of all mushrooms he could have eaten it had to be a so called "Death Cap". That is bad news, I hope the poor guy and his kid recover soon.

It must happen all over the world and should be reported for all to take notice nice work mj.

Terrible - and sadly you cant recover from liver failure - you either get a replacement or you die.

Strangely, it appears you *can* recover from liver failure caused by amatoxin poisoning. Almost 10 years ago a 13 year old girl was badly poisoned from eating Amanita phalloides in the San Francisco area. Rather than perform a full liver transplant, a portion of a donor liver was grafted onto her nonfunctioning liver. After 8 days her liver recovered and the grafted portion was removed. A followup after 4 months indicated that her liver was functioning normally.

Here's a medical article about the case.

Of course, what was done was basically a liver transplant, just a temporary one. Once her original liver recovered the graft could be removed and immunosuppressant therapy could be halted.

Happy mushrooming!
