“MDMA induced hyperthermia: a survivor with an initial body temperature of 42.9 degrees C”. 
J Accid Emerg Med. 1997 Sep;14(5):336-8.
A young male survived hyperpyrexia (42.9 degrees C) following MDMA ('Ecstasy') ingestion. He developed convulsions, rhabdomyolysis, metabolic acidosis, and respiratory failure. This was successfully managed by assisted ventilation, aggressive fluid therapy, and the early administration of dantrolene, in addition to cooling measures. This is the first report of a survivor with such a severe hyperpyrexia.
