“A traditional Malay myth leading to unintentional self intoxication with kecubung fruit”. 
Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 2009 Nov 28;40(6):1331-4.
Traditional Malay herbal medicine is still used in Malaysia especially in rural areas, instead of using modern medicine. Datura or 'kecubung' has been used to treat allergic rhinitis in certain places. Inaccurate doses can potentially cause severe or fatal neurologic anti-cholinergic toxidromes. A good knowledge of toxidromes with optimization of supportive care can prevent fatal complications and lead to a more speedy recovery. We present a case of kecubung poisoning.
