We present a case of severe haemolytic anemia with acute kidney injury within 48 hour of inhalation of toxic fume of mixtures of aluminium and lead in a heavy metal factory worker. Patient required 7 sessions of intermittent haemodialysis and after 3 weeks patient become nonoliguric and dialysis independent and made a full recovery in 3 month. We suggest that workers in metal factory should be tested for blood levels of metals on a periodic basis to avoid health hazards due to chronic exposures to toxic metal fumes.
