Pretilachlor is a chloracetanilide herbicide whose acute intoxication in humans via ingestion has been rarely reported. We report a case of suicidal ingestion of the herbicide with similar clinical manifestations of organophosphate toxicity. Awareness among clinicians regarding such mimickers is the key to proper management of the patient.
