BACKGROUND Pulmonary injury is the main cause of death in acute paraquat (PQ) poisoning. However, whether quantitative lung computed tomography (CT) can be useful in predicting the outcome of PQ poisoning remains unknown. We aimed to identify early findings of quantitative lung CT as predictors of outcome in acute PQ poisoning. METHODS Lung CT scanning(More)
CONTEXT In paraquat (PQ) poisoning, death often occurs after the appearance of pneumomediastinum (PM). However, the clinical features and eventual outcome of PM in PQ intoxication remains unclear. OBJECTIVE We aimed to characterize PM following PQ poisoning and its prognostic value for predicting mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS Enrolled PQ-poisoned(More)
