Presented is the case of a 62-year-old man with refractory shock secondary to copper sulfate ingestion. The patient's history was complicated by the presence of peptic ulcer disease, myocardial disease, and a known abdominal aortic aneurysm. Despite the presence of such characteristic signs and symptoms as hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, hemolytic anemia, and refractory hypotension, the diagnosis of copper sulfate ingestion was delayed for several days after ingestion, when the family first volunteered that the patient had vomited blue-green material the day before his admission to the hospital. This delay contributed significantly to the patient's ultimate demise.
