PMID:  16479869     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a series of six cases, admitted over a single weekend, following nasal inhalation of street drugs and exhibiting markedly atypical presentations. Clenbuterol, a beta2 adrenoceptor agonist, was identified as a contaminant. Increased awareness of the effects of specific adulterants is essential to the adequate management of these patients.
