Dr. Goran Jamal of Glasgow presented a most important paper on Organophosphate pesticide exposure.
Most physicians recognize only the existence of acute Organophosphate Pesticide Poisoning (OPP) and believe that once the immediate exposure is removed, the injury subsides.
There are, however, three other recognized major manifestations of toxicity: an intermediate syndrome, a delayed syndrome, and a long-term delayed neuropsychological disorder.
The Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine has had a great interest in the effects of OPP poisoning and has long concurred with Dr. Jamal’s review that people suffer very prolonged effects of exposure that are often disabling them for life. These compounds are profoundly neurotoxic which means they have serious effects on the brain and nervous system.
