The role of pesticides in pediatric illness is not well understood. This pilot study evaluated the impact of non-residential organophosphate (OP) pesticide applications on children's urinary metabolite levels in a county with year-round agricultural activity. Children aged 2?4 years (n = 112) who presented at community pediatric clinics with symptoms suggesting unrecognized pesticide-related illness were evaluated for the presence of OP metabolites. Urinary dialkyl phosphate metabolites were measured. Only 2 children had levels below the limits of detection (LOD) and the range for total metabolite levels was from
