In-hospital outcomes and delayed neurologic sequelae of seizure-related endosulfan poisoning


Endosulfan is classified as a highly toxic pesticide (Class I) in the EPA’s toxicity classification and as a moderately hazardous pesticide (Class II) in the WHO’s acute hazard classification [1]. Because it is a threat to human health and the environment, endosulfan is banned or being phased out in several countries, such as the USA, Sri Lanka, and South Korea. However, endosulfan poisoning still occurs due to stocks of endosulfan that existed prior to the implementation of the ban in these countries [2,3].
