|Title:||Tremor syndrome associated with a fungal toxin: Sequelae of food contamination||Authors:||Lewis, Peter R ;Cook, Lucy ;Donoghue, Michael B;Hocking, Ailsa D;Granger, Linda V||Issue Date:||Jan-2005||Source:||Volume 182, Issue 11, pp. 582 - 584.||Journal title:||The Medical Journal of Australia||Abstract:||We report on an elderly couple who presented with a syndrome that included severe generalised tremor and incoordination after eating soup from a damaged can. Black mould contaminating the can was subcultured and the fungus Penicillium crustosum was identified. This fungus usually produces a potent neurotoxin called penitrem A. The couple displayed symptoms consistent with penitrem A ingestion, all of which resolved fully. Penitrem A intoxication has been well documented in animals, but not in humans.||URI:||https://elibrary.cclhd.health.nsw.gov.au/cclhdjspui/handle/1/958||Pubmed:||https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15938687||ISSN:||0025-729X||Publicaton type:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Toxicity|
