Pesticides are being used in our society for the control and destruction of organisms interfering with his food, health and amenities. The Organophosphate insecticides are the insecticide group of choice in the agricultural world and are the most common cause of poisoning among the pesticides. These compounds are easily available in retail market and thus become popular for suicidal and accidental poisoning in developing countries like India, Srilanka, Iran etc. Homicidal administration is usually practiced by mixing these compounds with alcohol and capsules. Due to the lack of any official guidelines about the usage of pesticides in agriculture and domestic life there is a surge in the misuse of these agents in developing countries like India causing morbidity and mortality. The resources for treating this number of cases in government hospitals are limited and likely have an impact on patient outcome. In the present study we made an effort to analyze the impact of social, age, sex, area, manner, management and outcomes of OP poisoning in tertiary hospital.
