Intoxication by species of genus Paxillus

Incubation : less than 6 hours

The toxicity of this mushroom, wrongly considered harmless for a long time, is linked to certain immunogenic strains, whose repeated consumption causes an allergic reaction over time. The allergic reaction then results in a brutal destruction of blood. Apart from this, the ingestion of raw or undercooked specimens also causes poisoning, but of a different type.
