Abstract

Acute pancreatitis secondary to organophosphate intoxication is a rare and generally well-course condition, but it is important to be aware of this complication for appropriate clinical management. There are a few reports about this subject in the literature, but it is believed that there are more cases than are reported for this condition. Because symptoms of toxicity can mask this severe complication, we report two cases of acute pancreatitis due to organophosphate intoxication for alerting this condition.
