Abstract

Benzofury is a new-recreational drug of abuse (NRDA) that may contain benzofurans, pipradrol derivates (or its precursor) and caffeine. At present toxicological information is scarce; the main mechanism is considered similar to MDMA/MDA. We describe a case whose initial clinical presentation mimicked an infectious disease.
