A survey of South Carolina physicians indicted that about 600 cases of pesticide poisoning occur each year in the state. While the toxic agents were not identified, it is reasonable to assume that most of the poisonings were due to organophosphates with parathion being the most likely offender. With a ban of DDT imminent, an increase in the number of poisonings due to the organophosphates may be anticipated. Prompt diagnosis and treatment is essential to prevent death. If treatment is successful complete recovery can be anticipated.
