Vomit is a mycotoxin

Poisoning syndromes

The DGfM technical committee “Mushroom Utilization and Toxicology” has carefully compiled the following information and descriptions of the poisoning syndromes by evaluating the publications mentioned in the “Literature and Sources” chapter and based on their own experience (status 04.12.2015). The basis was in particular R. Flammer (2014): Giftpilze, AT-Verlag Aarau and Munich. 320 pp.

The following information is intended primarily to convey the current state of knowledge to mushroom experts (PSV) but also to medical staff or other interested parties.

This information is important for the PSV and the doctor:

  • who - Who (else) ate the mushrooms?
  • When - When were the mushrooms eaten?
  • Which - Which complaints arose when and in which order?
  • How many Preparation and amount of mushrooms consumed?
  • Repeated Meals in a row?
  • What - What species were the mushrooms collected or bought as?
  • alcohol - Did you drink alcohol?
  • Medication - Have you taken any medication, and if so, which ones?

At the thick-skinned potato bovist (Scleroderma citrinum) there are also isolated case descriptions of massive visual disturbances, loss of color vision, double vision, temporary blindness.

1.11. Omphalotus Syndrome ▲

Symptoms: Nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, lasting 1–5 (–7) days, sweating and headache possible, in some cases reduced blood pressure and heart rate described, very rarely neurological symptoms

1.12. Raw consumption ▲

First symptoms: Nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea

Latency: 15 minutes to 24 hours

Mushroom species: z. B. Kahler Krempling (Paxillus involutus), Honey mushroom (Armillaria mellea agg.), pearl mushroom (Amanita rubescens), Giant umbrellas (Macrolepiota spp.)

Many types of mushrooms - including those that are considered edible mushrooms when cooked - are poisonous when eaten raw. Your heat-labile toxins are only rendered harmless by thorough heating (boiling or frying for 15 minutes). Some of them have a haemolytic and / or agglutinating effect when consumed raw.

1.13. Contamination, aging (fake mushroom poisoning) ▲

Fungi can accumulate heavy metals (lead, cadmium, mercury) and radioactive substances (cesium-137, strontium-90). Fungi, especially from road and field edges or industrial areas, can be contaminated by fertilizers, pesticides or heavy metals. The crown cup (Sarcosphaera coronaria) arsenic accumulates in large amounts. Chanterelles in stores were contaminated with the insecticide DEET, boletus mushrooms in stores with nicotine; the BfR considers the quantities determined to be harmless to health. In cultivated mushrooms, pesticides have even been detected as multiple residues. The BfR warned against salmonella in dried mushrooms.

It is assumed that fungi on yew wood or needles in the litter layer can absorb toxins from the yew (cases of poisoning known in sulfur pores [Laetiporus sulphureus] and boletus [Boletus edulis]).

In oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus) and velvet foot carrots (Flamulina velutipes), the golden rain (Laburnum) grew, no alkaloids could be detected. Another problem is the often uncritical attitude of consumers towards the rapid aging and rot of mushrooms. Mushrooms that are already rotten, moldy, and have an unpleasant smell must not be consumed.

In some regions of Germany, especially southern and eastern Bavaria, z. B. chestnut boletus, bread stubble mushrooms, birch mushrooms and cow boletus still significantly 137Cs and 90Sr burdened. (see radioactivity in mushrooms).
