Usability:

The members of the Cortinarius genus of mushrooms, once thought to be harmless, are deadly poison—almost as poisonous as the Amanita genus of mushrooms. A little more than a cup of the cooked mushrooms can be fatal. Found in central Europe, the mushrooms have caps ranging from blue violet (which can be eaten) to those of brown or red (deadly); they get their name from the veil that sometimes covers the gills of young mushrooms.

Orellanin

Symptoms

Treatment

The mushroom contains the poison orellanin, which damages the liver and kidneys. Symptoms do not appear until three days to two weeks after ingestion; by then, the victim develops excessive thirst and may drink several liters of fluid a day. By this time, the liver and kidneys usually have been irreversibly damaged. Other symptoms may include nausea, headache, muscular pains, and chills. Gastric lavage, if performed immediately after ingestion. In general, the only treatment once symptoms appear are kidney and liver transplants.
