Abstract

A 39-year-old woman intentionally ingested Amberes shoe dye containing both methanol and aniline. She subsequently developed life-threatening methanol poisoning, methemoglobinemia, hemolytic anemia, and sulfhemoglobinemia. Treatment involved methylene blue infusion, emergent hemodialysis, fomepizole therapy, and blood products. Multiple toxicities can occur after ingestion of shoe dyes.
