Organophosphate (OP) poisoning is one of the serious occupational hazards worldwide and easily accessible pesticides for suicidal poisoning. It is associated with high mortality and morbidity. OP poisoning is characterized by three main syndromes – cholinergic syndrome, intermediate syndrome and syndrome of delayed polyneuropathy.

We present 46-year-old male patient with history of OP poisoning, who developed features of intermediate syndrome and pancreatitis.
