Abstract

The appearance of a single blob of denatured haemoglobin in red cells staining prominently with supravital dyes is described in a case of fatal haemolysis following infusions of methylene blue (MB) for the treatment of toxic methaemoglobinaemia. This unique inclusion hitherto unreported may be used to predict impending haemolysis.
