“Survival following 'Ecstasy' ingestion with a peak temperature of 42 degrees C”. 
Anaesthesia. 1993;48(11):1017-8.
We read with interest the case report on hyperthermia associated with 3,4-methylenedioxyethamphetamine ('Eve') ingestion (Anaesthesia 1993: 48: 507-13). It is stated that no patient described in the literature with a peak temperature of 42C or greater following methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, 'Ecstasy') ingestion survived. We wish to report a case in which survival occured in a patient with a maximum axillary temperature of 42C.
