Title Short-term toxicity of mevinphos in man.
Bibliographic information Aug. 1974, Vol.29, No.2, p.84-89. Illus. 20 ref.
Abstract A report of 2 cases of acute poisoning by mevinphos. The symptomatology was similar to that previously reported for exposure to other organophosphate compounds. Blood coagulation studies showed marked fibrinolysis in one case and marked hypercoagulability in the other. Haematuria persisted in one patient for more than 8 days. Because of the recent development of techniques for the measurement of alkyl phosphate ester excretion, it was possible to study the excretion pattern of dimethylphosphate in both cases. Both patients responded well to treatment by atropine sulfate.
