What is Huff Syndrome?
According to SMS, “black urine,” Huff syndrome, is a bacterial infection associated with eating raw or cooked fish. The bacteria are transmitted by eating the toxin in meat.
The disease is characterized by the destruction of muscle proteins causing symptoms such as loss of physical strength, muscle pain, fainting, fever and dark urine.
However, the way in which the animal becomes contaminated with the poison that causes the disease, is not a consensus among experts. Some infectious scientists say that the poison results from poor packaging of the fish, but others claim that it comes from algae that the animal consumes.
Infection specialist Mariana Tasara explained that the poison can be developed in raw or cooked fish, because it is thermophilic, that is, it is not eliminated at high temperatures. However, it is a rare case.
The doctor explains that “the packaging of this fish can cause this toxin that causes food poisoning. And because it is a very rare syndrome, there is no need to panic.”
