Why did this man’s urine turn green? Picture: The New England Journal of Medicine

Imagine that! You are at the hospital and your urine turns green. Yes, from yellow to green!

The 62-year-old patient went to the emergency room after having difficulty breathing for two days because he had high levels of carbon dioxide in his blood.

Because of his progressive lung disease called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the man was placed on a ventilator and given a general anaesthetic called propofol.

And five days later, the man’s urine turned green.

According to the authors of the study, green urine can be due to medication side effects, certain infections and liver problems.

In the present case, the culprit was linked to amedication side effect due to propofol – mainly used during general anesthesia.

The process of urine discoloration isn’t completely understood. The green color was probably linked to metabolites (breakdown products of propofol) metabolized through the kidneys rather than the liver.

The man’s urine returned to a normal color once he was taken off propofol. But keep in mind that people’s urine can take on an array of colors. More weird health news on NEJM, Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle.
