Abstract: Context: Amanita phalloides related toxicity from amatoxins can result in acute liver and multi-organ failure and is responsible for 90% of all mushroom poisoning death. However, more evidence is needed in regards to different management strategies. Case details: We present two cases of amanita mushroom ingestion who were treated with intravenous rifampicin. Discussion: Further study is needed to establish the efficacy and role of rifampicin in amatoxin related mushroom poisoning.
