Mushrooms of the ubiquitous Cortinarius species (Cs) contain nephrotoxins that can cause acute and chronic renal failure by an unknown pathomechanism. 8 (5):[Medline]. Orellanine seems to cause almost no reaction in glomeruli, although in an animal model, elimination of orellanine was almost exclusively by glomerular filtration. [Medline]. Most documented cases of orellanine toxicity are from Europe.

In colour, it is an orange-brown, and is covered in fine, fibrous scales but become smooth with age. Unknown mushroom type makes up most mushroom exposures each year, usually accounting for well over 80% of mushroom exposures (eg, 4911 in 2017). Litovitz TL, Klein-Schwartz W, White S, et al.

Orellanine, the main toxin responsible for orellanine poisoning, was detected in biological fluids and renal biopsies. We reported a highly sensitive and simple fluorimetric technique to analyse orellanine by thin-layer chromatography on the basis of its characteristic photodecomposition into orelline. TY - JOUR T1 - [Orellanus syndrome: mushroom poisoning with kidney insufficiency]. 18 (1):121. , Cortinarius orellanus has a concave cap of 3 to 6 centimetres (1 1⁄4 to 2 1⁄4 in) diameter, though rare specimens reach 8 centimetres (3 1⁄4 in) across. Symptomatology, clinical characteristics and pathogenesis of mushroom poisoning caused by Cortinarius species are surveyed. Although mushroom poisoning is a rare cause of acute renal injury, in some cases it may lead to the development of a severe and irreversible renal failure. A common feature among all species in the genus Cortinarius is that young specimens have a cortina (veil) between the cap and the stem, hence the name, meaning curtained. 35, No. After ingestion of Cortinarius rubellus and Cortinarius orellanus, no specific treatment is available.
