Amitraz poisoning is a rare disorder characterised by central nervous system and respiratory depression, bradycardia, hypotension, hypothermia, hyperglycemia, vomiting, convulsion and glycosuria. In this study, eight pediatric patients with amitraz poisoning were presented. This study revealed that clinical manifestations of poisoning by oral and dermal route emerged within 30-120 min and that central nervous system depression which is the most important sign resolved with 8-18 h and others 36-48 h. All cases were discharged as recovered after 48 h. To our knowledge only six cases have been reported in the literature. Because of the limited information in the literature, the cases were reported.
