Abstract
The article presents three cases of organophosphorus poisoning in which the source of exposure precipitating the illnesses appeared to be airplanes contaminated with insecticides were seen in a period of three weeks. This experience emphasizes the fact that all equipment used for application or handling of toxic insecticides, particularly the relatively stable ones such as parathion, should be considered dangerous until thorough decontamination procedures have been carried out.
