Interest in the metabolic events associated with dithiazanine iodide intoxication was stimulated by the observation of lactic acidosis in a patient who absorbed dithiazanine from the gastrointestinal tract. A measured plasma lactate of 36 mEq/liter and "excess lactate" (Huckabee) of 27 mEq/liter in this patient were corrected with methylene blue. Experimentally in dogs, a suspension of dithiazanine iodide in saline was given intravenously, and lactic acidosis was produced in all 11. A direct linear correlation was noted between the injected dose of dithiazanine in milligrams per kilogram of body weight and the maximum serum lactate response produced, between the dithiazanine
