PMID:  10826009     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 47-year-old man with a prior gunshot wound presented with arthritis, constipation, abdominal pain, and weight loss. Arthrocentesis did not reveal the cause of the arthritic complaints, but lead poisoning was suspected and confirmed. We present this case along with a short review of the literature pertaining to this often overlooked and reversible cause of lead poisoning.
