• Fatal outcome after ingestion of star fruit (Averrhoa carambola) in uremic patients: The study warns that patients with renal failure who ingest star fruit may develop neurological symptoms and run the risk of death in severe cases. Hemodialysis, especially on a daily basis, is the ideal treatment for star fruit intoxication.
