Título An unusual presentation of systemic organophosphate poisoning.
Información bibliográfica 6 Sep. 1975, Vol.2, No.10, p.394-395. Illus.
Resumen A pest control operator was exposed to leakage of a 1% solution of dichlorvos in mineral spirit from a knapsack sprayer. Extensive erythema and bullae developed; the whole blood cholinesterase level was 36% of normal. On conservative treatment recovery was uneventful and the cholinesterase levels were normal within one month. It is suggested that any patient with a local skin reaction to pesticides be tested routinely for systemic poisoning, and that further exposure be forbidden until cholinesterase levels are normal.
