We describe the case of an adolescent girl who received high-dose metoclopramide in combination with oral N-acetylcysteine therapy for acute acetaminophen toxicity. Whole blood-sample analysis for abnormal hemoglobin pigments established the diagnosis of sulfhemoglobinemia. Metoclopramide has been shown to cause sulfhemoglobinemia, particularly when used in repeated high doses. Although N-acetylcysteine alone has not been associated as the cause, we suggest that sulfhemoglobine-mia is a potential complication in patients treated with metoclopramide for the nausea that often accompanies oral N-acetylcysteine therapy for acetaminophen toxicity. Cyanosis without respiratory distress should suggest this diagnosis.
