Intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) is increasingly used for the treatment of poisoning caused by lipid-soluble drugs. We report a case of reversal of cardiovascular collapse after the use of ILE in a patient with a mixed overdose, mainly of the calcium channel blocker felodipine. Conclusions that can be drawn from a single case are limited, but this report provides circumstantial evidence of benefit of ILE for felodipine poisoning. The use of ILE appears justified in cases refractory to conventional therapy.
