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.

Enjoy the world around you ...... Good Luck Hunting and Collecting. The future of shrooms depends on all of us.

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!
