It presents sedative, aphrodisiac, emetic, analgesic, and anesthetic effects. In our presentation, we studied the case of a 58-year-old female patient who developed allergic contact dermatitis following the application of Mandragora roots to the skin for the treatment of leg pains. Plants such as Mandragora, which contain many chemicals, must be used carefully. Further, emergency physicians must be aware of the side effects of plants used in traditional medicine and show great accuracy at the diagnosis-treatment point. &60;/span&62;&60;/p&62;
