• We observed a case of poisoning with sodium fluoroacetate, an extremely lethal rodenticide that has had relatively strict controls placed on its use. The case was unusual in the very long time the rodenticide had been present in the home, the mild nature of the poisoning, and the remarkably delayed onset of serious central nervous system symptoms. It demonstrates the need for even stronger controls on the use of sodium fluoroacetate.
