Organophosphorus compound masquerading Amitraz: An uncommon case report


Sheetal Sehrawat, Kashif Ali

Amitraz is a formamidine chemical compound which is widely used in numerous industries like pharmaceutical, veterinary and agricultural and is used for the treatment of generalised demodisosis in dogs & ticks and mites in cattle. A 13 year old female was referred to KLE hospital in semiconscious state with GCS-10/15 and intermittently irritable with delirium having accidentally in taken an unknown compound. Organophosphorous and Amitraz have a similar kind of clinical presentation and moreover Amitraz poisoning is quite uncommon i.e. why most of the time it is mistaken for organophosphorous poisoning. So it is important to get the poison detected especially when two poisons have similar clinical presentation but different plan of management. Despite of its widespread use, very few cases of human poisoning have been described leading to low awareness among the healthcare providers.
