19-year-old dies after inhaling deodorant spray to get high

Because deaths from deodorant inhalation are not common among the general population, the "consequences aren't really known," a doctor says.

(CNN)A 19-year-old died after inhaling deodorant spray to get high, according to a new case report, and doctors who treated the man in the Netherlands are using the case to highlight the fatal consequences of inhaling chemicals.

Such cases are "very rare," according to Dr. Kelvin Harvey Kramp of Maasstad Hospital's intensive care unit in Rotterdam.
Kramp explained that because deaths from deodorant inhalation are not common among the general population, the "consequences aren't really known," causing people to continue this dangerous behavior.
