Organophosphate poisoning during pregnancy is rarely reported in the literature. In our retrospective study, we report the outcome of 21 cases of organophosphate poisoning during pregnancy. All patients received atropine injection until the tracheobronchial tree is cleared of the secretions and most secretions were dried. In addition, ventilatory care was needed in five women. Two patients (9.52%) died of the organophosphorus poisoning during the acute stage of poisoning and three patients were lost to follow-up. One woman had a spontaneous abortion. The remaining 15 women had no significant complication during pregnancy or labour and delivery. There was no congenital abnormality and no neurological deficit in any baby. However, long-term follow-up of neonates was lacking in our study population.
