Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Severe cases of poisoning with pesticides, especially suicidal ones, continue to be a diagnostic and therapeutic problem in Regional Toxicological Centre in Lublin. The present author describes the pathomechanism of poisonings with dipyridil herbicides basing on the literature on the subject. The present article presents our own observations of the treatment of acute poisonings with the above herbicides, the clinical course, and complications from various internal organs, outcome and prognosis in this type of poisoning cases in the Lublin macro-region basing on the comprehensive material gathered. Our observations confirm high toxicity of dipyridil, especially in the cases of suicidal poisoning with changes in many internal organs and often a lethal outcome. High mortality rate in these cases motivates for finding better prevention methods not only when they are produced and distributed but also when they are used on fields.
