Abstract
A fatal case of acebutolol self-poisoning is presented. After single-step liquid-liquid alkaline extraction, acebutolol was identified by using an HPLC/DAD screening procedure. By means of a specific HPLC method, acebutolol was then quantified in a large range of postmortem samples. The blood acebutolol concentration was 34.7 micrograms/mL. The tissue distribution of the drug is discussed in the light of the existing literature.
