    Abstract

    We report the cases of three men with severe hype rhomocysteinaemia that was associated with high alcohol intake and which resolved on reduction of alcohol intake. Investigation to identify other obvious causes of the hyperhomocysteinaemia excluded renal failure and vitamin deficiencies. Alcohol as a possible cause of significantly increased plasma homocysteine may be under-recognized by clinicians.
