Primary Outcome Measures:
  • histo-pathological findings [ Time Frame: 1 day after patient died ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    for evaluate of this outcome we gather autopsy data


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • age [ Time Frame: 5 min after admission time ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    we gathered demogeraphic data such as age

  • gender [ Time Frame: 5 min after admission time ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    we gathered demographic data such as gender

  • dosage of poisoning [ Time Frame: 5 min after admission time ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    we gathered historical data then estimated dosage of paraquat ingestion

after patients died the pathological findings evaluated with autopsy

Detailed Description:

Acute poisoning of paraquat which is taken either to commit suicide or by mistake has become a social problem in world. The present study was conducted to determine frequencies of histo-pathological findings in dead poisoned patients and evaluate their relationships with age, gender, dosage of poisoning, time of admission and time of death.
