Abstract

We describe two cases of acute liver failure following heat stroke after participation in a running event. At admission both pa-tients had a severely affected circulation, altered consciousness and hyperthermia, with a core temperature of > 40 degrees Celsius. Within the first 24 hours both patients suffered from acute liver failure, kidney failure and coagulopathy. No other causes but dehydration and hyperthermia could explain the liver failure. The treatment of heat stroke is symptomatic, but liver transplantation may be an option in case of fulminant liver failure.
