||19 Apr. 1997, Vol.349, No.9059, p.1161-1166. 51 ref.
||Toxic effects of exposure to a range of pesticides are reviewed: organophosphates and N-methyl carbamates (neurotoxic effects, cholinesterase inhibition, irritation, neuropathy, neurobehavioural effects); pyrethrin and synthetic pyrethroid insecticides (allergic reactions); organochlorine insecticides (neurotoxic effects); fumigants and nematocides (non-specific gastrointestinal, cardiorespiratory and central nervous system effects); and herbicides and dipyridyls (irritation and systemic poisoning following ingestion). Pesticide poisoning treatments are outlined and brief case studies illustrate common acute effects.
