Limited data are available on the use of dialysis to treat cyanide or thiocyanate intoxication. This report describes the case of a 65-year-old woman with renal insufficiency who had development of thiocyanate toxicity secondary to a nitroprusside infusion. A rapid decline in her blood thiocyanate level was observed in response to initiation of continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration.
