Sažetak

Seven cases of toxic methaemoglobinaemia due to accidental nitrite poisoning in workers engaged in the preparation of meat and meat products are reported. In all these cases the meat-pickling salt was ingested as a consequence of the accidental water and food contamination. The main sources of nitrites in clinical intoxications are listed and the importance of the meat preserving solution for mass poisoning is emphasized. The general chemistry of the meat curing process is therefore briefly described. The clinical picture and the treatment of toxic methaemoglobinaemia are discussed.
