Abstract
The abuse of hydrocarbon by inhalation in adolescent ages has increased in last years due to the euphoric effect it provokes. Butane, which is a kind of hydrocarbon compound, may be abused by inhalation and thus lead to addiction. Inhaling lighter fluid containing butane can cause lung toxicity, brain damage, myocardial effects, and neurologic problems. We reported, in parallel to literature, a 19-year-old patient who inhaled lighter fluid and who presented with lung hemorrhage, hypoxia and acute coronary syndrome.

Key words: Butan inhalation, Sudden death, Adolescent ages
