The clinical and laboratory findings in a severe form of ichthyosarcotoxism, or fish flesh poisoning, are presented. This disorder, not previously described in the pediatric literature, is characterized by pronounced neurotoxic manifestations, especially of the sensory system. The majority of cases are mild, but in the severe intoxications recovery is slow and symptoms may persist for many years.
