Abstract

Methylene blue is used to assess the integrity of the bowel and may cause self-limiting bluish or greenish hue to the urine. Green urine is also caused by medications such as propofol and infections such as pseudomonas. Knowledge of the benign nature of this condition prevents unnecessary consultations and anxiety.
