Abstract

Amitraz is a veterinary pesticide commonly used for killing lice in dogs and cattle. Amitraz poisoning is reported from some areas of the world. It is important to recognise this particular poisoning and differentiate it from organophosphate poisoning (OPC). We present here a case of a 19-year-old girl who presented to us with all the typical symptoms of Amitraz poisoning and was effectively managed at our centre.
