Five potentially life-threatening toxidromes (sympathomimetic overdose, anticholinergic overdose, serotonin syndrome, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, and malignant hyperthermia) can all present with overlapping clinical features: hyperthermia, altered mental status/seizures, rhabdomyolysis.

This resource reviews the features of each with historical/exam pearls to differentiate.
