Abstract

Pesticides, organophosphates and carbamates in particular, are the cause of the 50% of suicidal, homicidal and accidental poisoning in Macedonia, Greece1. Methamidophos (O,S-dimethyl-phosphoramidothioate) an organophosphorous insecticide which is widely used in agriculture in spite of its extremely high toxicity, is the commonest pesticide encountered in poisoning cases.
