A Case Report of Amitraz Poisoning
Keywords:bradycardia; hypotension; poisoning; vomiting; drowsiness.
Amitraz is a pesticide commonly used in agriculture and veterinary practice to repel ectoparasites and insects. Poisoning with amitraz is rare especially for the purpose of self-harm. Although rarely fatal, it can result in significant symptoms. Management typically involves symptomatic treatment. We report a 34-year-old man who attempted suicide by ingesting amitraz presenting with unconsciousness. He had miosis, persistent bradycardiaand extreme hypotension. Symptomatic treatment recovered him well with discharge from care with nocomplications and good health within 36 hours.
