Abstract

We report a 56-year-old male with methemoglobinemia and hemolytic anemia, secondary to fava bean ingestion. Methylene blue administration worsened the hemolysis as he was G6PD deficient but not diagnosed before. We have discussed the mechanism of hemolysis in such patients and the management of such cases.
