    Abstract

    A death following deliberate ingestion of approximately 75 g of probenecid in a 36-year-old man is described. Tissue concentrations of probenecid were highest in serum (710 mg/L) and liver (550 mg/kg). Probenecid was also detected in vitreous and bile. Ethanol was also detected in blood at 0.13 g/100 mL.
