PMID:  9251175     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Clinical experience with toxicity induced by products containing gamma butyrolactone is limited. We report here 2 cases of gamma butyrolactone poisoning with a nail polish remover labelled "acetone-free". Rapid onset of coma, respiratory depression and bradycardia occurred in both patients. After supportive care, they fully recovered within a few hours.
