Kang C, Kim DH, Kim SC, Kim DS - J Emerg Trauma Shock (2014)

Bottom Line: The signs and symptoms of chlorfenapyr toxicity include nausea, vomiting, fever, rhabdomyolysis, among others.In addition, central nervous system effects in association with delayed toxicity have also been observed.Here, we detail a fatality resulting from delayed chlorfenapyr toxicity following the ingestion of a small amount of pesticide.

ABSTRACT
Chlorfenapyr has been used worldwide for agricultural pest control since 1995. Despite its widespread use, acute human poisoning data are insufficient; only a small number of fatalities from chlorfenapyr poisoning have been reported. The signs and symptoms of chlorfenapyr toxicity include nausea, vomiting, fever, rhabdomyolysis, among others. In addition, central nervous system effects in association with delayed toxicity have also been observed. Here, we detail a fatality resulting from delayed chlorfenapyr toxicity following the ingestion of a small amount of pesticide.

Figure 1: A brain computed tomography scan shows diffuse cerebral swelling with low-density lesions in the white matter throughout the brain

Mentions: The emergency department managed this patient by providing supportive care, including intravenous fluid hydration and urine alkalinization. We were able to exclude the possibility of central nervous system (CNS) infection, because we had already performed brain computed tomography (CT) and a lumbar puncture. The brain CT scan showed diffuse cerebral swelling with low density lesions in the white matter throughout the brain [Figure 1]. However, the patient's cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure was normal and the lumbar puncture was unremarkable.
