Extrapyramidal parkinsonism complicating acute organophosphate insecticide poisoning

Extrapyramidal parkinsonism complicating acute organophosphate insecticide poisoning

Pediatric Neurology 33(5): 378-382

The aim of this study is to report our experience with a child who developed extrapyramidal perturbations complicating acute organophosphate insecticide poisoning and to review the literature report on basal ganglia impairment associated with this type of poisoning. Our patient developed overt parkinsonism presenting with a resting tremor, expressionless face, and lack of blinking along with marked cogwheel rigidity and a stooped, slow gait.
