A case of full-blown, lethal MDMA intoxication, owing to abuse of ecstasy is described. The increasing popularity of ecstasy among young, otherwise healthy, people prompts health care providers to recognise better the symptoms of systemic intoxication in order to initiate early treatment, such as rehydration, cooling in cases of hyperthermia, seizure treatment, correction of cardiac arrhythmia, and metabolic and electrolyte abnormalities.
