Abstract

For the diagnosis of a case of poisoning, judgement is based on history obtained and signs and symptoms prevailed by a particular consumed poison. But sometimes poisoning may not be suspected ordinarily, because symptoms and signs are not present, specifically and it may even resemble natural disease. Besides it, the history is not available most of the time or if it is available is not correct. Diagnosis of poisoning based on wrong information by exclusion technique has hazardous clinical and legal implications.
