Astonished by such a condition, the medical team sent his blood for analysis within no time. The test revealed that this blood discolouration was caused by sulfhaemoglobinaemia, which occurs when a sulphur atom gets incorporated into the oxygen-carrying haemoglobin protein in blood.

According to doctors, the patient’s migraine medication was the main culprit behind this condition. “It is possible that our patient’s arguably excessive intake of sumatriptan, which contains a sulfonamide group, caused his sulfhaemoglobinaemia,” they say.
