Four cases of acute renal failure following copper sulphate poisoning have been described. All of them had intravascular hae­molysis with varying degree of methaemoglobinaemia, -needing specific therapy for the same. They also were icteric due to acute hepatic damage and two of them died from irreversible hepatic damage despite dialysis which were given to them with a view to remove copper and uremic metabolites.
