PMID:  15829126     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An autistic patient living in a residential home presented with symptoms of weight loss and abdominal pain. On investigation, she was found to have lead poisoning from an unusual source. Her treatment proved difficult due to failure to cooperate, and a 'best-case' protocol was devised. The positive identification of a source of exposure can be difficult in a single case of exposure, but this was eventually achieved by means of stable lead isotope analysis following painstaking detective work.
