Mecury poisoning is one of the most common heavy metal poisoning. Unless it is diagnosed and treated earlier, it may lead to multiple organ dysfunction and irreversible brain damage. Acute mercury poisoning is characterized by interstitial pneumonia, fatigue, anorexia, weight loss, gastrointestinal tract disturbances followed by tremor, increased excitability, amnesia, insomnia and delirium. Chronic mercury poisoning produces especially the central nervous system dysfunction.

Presenting a case of acute mercury intoxication who developed fatique, fever, rash and neurologic deficit, we aim to call attention to its irreversible consequences especially in the central nervous system and may be fatal if it is diagnosed and treated too late.
