Abstract

Rodenticide poisoning is most commonly misused in our country. It is easily available due to its low cost. The main aim of this study is to determine the impact on its clinical and biochemical profile among the different forms of Rodenticide. 150 patients was included in this study. Renal parameters, liver function test, coagulation profile and USG was done. In our study, the commonest poison consumed was powder followed by bait and paste. Gastrointestinal manifestations being the commonest presentation observed in all forms of rodenticide poisoning. Bait forms are derived from super warfarin which causes more bleeding manifestation, whereas paste form produces damage on liver, kidney and brain due to phosphorous content. The death rate was also higher in patients who consumed paste. Few patients with powder poisoning was found to have hypokalemia, due to barium content. N-acetyl cysteine is used for non liver transplant patients with Rodenticide poisoning.
