Paraquat poisoning: A case report


Author(s): Dr. Joshi Anumeha

Abstract: Paraquat (1, 1’ dimethyl 4,4’ dipyridylium) is a highly toxic chemical herbicide or week killer. It is one of the most common herbicides used today, but it can cause fatal poisoning when ingested or inhaled. It is often difficult to diagnose in the face of non specific clinical features. Although it is freely available herbicide, few cases have been reported from India. We have reported a case of fatal paraquat poisoning at Hindu Rao Hospital and NDMC Medical College, Delhi.
