    Methemoglobinemia is rare condition of hem iron. Ferrous form iron (Fe2+) is oxidised to Ferric form (Fe3+). Methemoglobin has reduced ability to release oxygen to tissues and thereby leads to tissue hypoxia. We present case of patient with methemoglobinemia of unknown etiology. Methemoglobinemia developed during hospitalization. Diferent causes of methemoglobinemia and also a treatment possibilities are discussed.
