Paraquat (1,1'-dimethyl-4.4'-dipyridilium dichloride)is a widely used, effective herbicide that is marketed as an aerosol, granule, or 20% to 40% liquid concentrate. When accidentally or purposefully ingested by man, the concentrated liquid compound is a highly toxic, multisystem poison capable of causing injury to lung, kidney, heart, CNS and other organs. We had an autopsy case of 16-years old female patient with suicidal paraquat poisoning.
