BARRIOS FLORES, Jorge A.; TORO LEDEZMA, Marco A.; CHURQUI ALCONZ, Soledad  y  MORALES DELGADO, Rene. Report a case: chlorfenapyr intoxication with a fatal ending. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2017, vol.40, n.1, pp. 53-55. ISSN 1012-2966.

Chlorfenapyr is an insecticide for agricultural use, whose ingestion in people produces a poisoning that is sometimes fatal. It is presented a clinical case of a male patient with oral intake of chlorfenapyr, presenting a likeness compatible with neurological deterioration and rhabdomyolysis with fatal outcome despite supportive treatment. The mechanism of action of this substance is the inhibition of oxidative phosphorylation in the mitochondria and it is postulated that this is the conditioning mechanism of mortality in people, with lesions in major organs such as CNS and muscle, reported in clinical cases around the world.

Palabras clave : intoxication; chlorfenapyr; rhabdomyolysis; fatal.
