The man, 30, from the US state of Nebraska, was rushed to an emergency room in a state of confusion, according to the case published in Journal of the Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry.
He spent 22 days in hospital with eight of them in the ICU. The man had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder type 1 and was meant to be taking medication for it.
But his family said he stopped taking his medication and began « cycling between depressive and manic states”.
He then boiled psilocybin mushrooms, also known as magic mushrooms, into a fluid or a tea believing they would help alleviate his anguish.
Over the following days he became overly tired and vomited blood. He also developed jaundice, diarrhoea and nausea.
His family rushed him to hospital but when doctors spoke with him he struggled to answer their questions.
Doctors tested his blood and found Brevibacillus in the bloodstream along with a fungal infection. Brevibacillus is commonly found in soil.
The man was treated with antibiotics and antifungals. He continued to take medication after leaving hospital.
