Ethylene glycol & Boric acid poisoning

Ethylene glycol & Boric acid poisoning


Ethylene  glycol

  • It  is  used as  an antifreeze.
  • It  is  not  absorbed  through  skin.
  • It is  metabolised to  glycoaldehyde,  glycolic  acid  and  oxalic  acid.
  • Ethylene glycol when ingested affects kidney by forming oxalates.
  • It  inhibits  oxidative  phosphorylation.
  • Symptoms:  vomiting,  lethargy,  ataxia,  convulsions & coma.
  • ln  l2-24hrs,  tachycardia,  tachyapnea,electrolyte  imbalance&  metabolic acidosis.
  • In 1-3  days,  hypocalcemia,  oliguria,  tubular necrosis  & renal  failure  occurs due to  formation  of calcium  oxalate crystals.
  • Antidote for ethylene glycol poisoning:Fomepizole.
  • I.V. fomepizole or ethanol is given in ethylene glycol poisoning.
  • Fomepizole (an alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitor) is the DOC.

Treatment–  gastric  lavage,  activated  charcoal,  ethanol,  hemodialysis.

Boric acid  poisoning

  • Boric  acid poisoning  is  rarely fatal 
  • Most  serious intoxications  occur  in  infants  and  young  children
  • The initial  phase  of  poisoning  consists of  nonspecific  gastrointestinal symptoms.
  • The ‘boiled  lobster’rash  an  intense generalized  erythrodema,  manifests shortly thereafter,  with  extensive  desquamation  within 1-2 days.
  • serious  effect
  • cardiovascular  collapse.
  • seizures, and renal failure.

Treatment: The  only potential  therapy  is  dialysis  or exchange  transfusion  which  has been effective

 A

10-15 mg

 B

20-40 mg

 C

60-100 mg

 D

Q. 1

Signs and symptoms usually develop within 15–30 minutes of strychnine ingestion. What is the fatal dose of strychnine?

 A

10-15 mg

 B

20-40 mg

 C

60-100 mg

 D

100-120 mg

Ans. C

Explanation:

Strychnine poisoning:

  • It is an alkaloid derived from the seeds of the tree Strychnos nux-vomica.
  • The potentially fatal dose of strychnine is approximately 50–100 mg (1 mg/kg) and fatal period is 1-2 hours.
  • Strychnine competitively antagonizes glycine, an inhibitory neurotransmitter released by postsynaptic inhibitory neurons in the spinal cord.
  • Muscular stiffness and painful cramps precede generalized muscle contractions, extensor muscle spasms, and opisthotonus. 
  • Death usually is caused by respiratory arrest that results from intense contraction of the respiratory muscles.

Q. 2

Which of the following is the site of action of strychnine poison for its toxicity?

 A

Heart

 B

Anterior horn cells

 C

Posterior horn cells

 D

All of the above

Ans. B

Explanation:

Strychnine competitively blocks ventral horn motor neuron postganglionic receptor sites in the spinal cord and prevents the effects of glycine, an inhibitory neurotransmitter released by postsynaptic inhibitory neurons in the spinal cord.
Strychnine binds to the chloride ion channel, causing increased neuronal excitability and exaggerated reflex arcs.
This results in generalized seizure-like contraction of skeletal muscles.
Simultaneous contraction of opposing flexor and extensor muscles causes severe muscle injury, with rhabdomyolysis, myoglobinuria, and, in some cases, acute renal failure.

  • The main poisonous  alkaloid  is  strychnine.
  • Strychine  is  used  as  a respiratory  stimulant, rodenticide, cattle  poison, and  for  killing  stray  dogs.
  • Strychine stimulates  all parts  of CNS  and particularly  the  anterior  horn cells causing  greatly increased  reflex
  • Cerebral  cortex (brain)  and respiratory  center are stimulated.
  • It causes great incresed reflex activity by antagonizing the action of glycine.

Clinical features :

  • Prodromal  symptoms,  e.g.  incresed  activity  of  perception,  rigidity  of muscles and twitching’
  • Convulsions  afiecting  all  muscles at s time,  they  are  initially  clonic  and  eventually  become  tonic.
  • Between  convulsions,  muscles  are completely relaxed
  • Due  to  spasm  of  jaw  and  facial  muscles, corners  of mouth  are  drawn back   → Risus sardonicus.
  •  Hyperextention  of  whole  body  → Opisthotonus.
  • Spasm  of  abdominal  muscles  my  bend  the  body  forward  (emprosthotonus)  or to  the  side (pleurosthotonus)
  • Mind  (consciousness)  remains  clear throughout  till  death

Q. 1

Barbiturate ingestion is associated with hypertrophy of which cellular organelle?

 A

Mitochondria

 B

Endoplasmic reticulum

 C

Golgi apparatus

 D

Nucleolus

Ans. B

Explanation:

Hypertrophy usually refers to increase in size of cells or tissues, but sometimes a subcellular organelle may undergo selective hypertrophy. Individuals treated with drugs such as barbiturates show hypertrophy of the smooth endoplamic reticulum (ER) in hepatocytes, which is an adaptive response that increases the amount of enzymes (cytochrome P-450 mixed function oxidases) available to detoxify the drugs.
