Abstract

Aluminum Phosphate (AP) is a cheap and highly effective pesticide. Phosphine is the active pesticidal component which is highly toxic. Mortality is high and ranges between 40-70%. There is a desperate need for creating awareness. We report a case series with a mortality of 40% and emphasize the need for public awareness.
