Intentional acute toxicity by colchicine is not common but accompanies a high rate of complications and mortality. It is generally assumed to be an emergency in clinical toxicology. Rapid diagnosis and treatment can prevent death. The most common causes of death in this toxicity are acute cardiac failure, shock, and dysrhythmias with hematopoietic complications occurring in later stages. We report three cases of acute colchicine toxicity, two of which expired, with different presenting and ongoing signs and symptoms. We aimed to define the different possible clinical manifestations of the toxicity and review the probable treatments available for these patients.
