Reversible Acute Kidney Injury Associated with Chlorothalonil Ingestion


A 43-year-old man ingested a chlorothalonil-containing fungicide in a suicide attempt.

Acute toxicity from chlorothalonil ingestion has been described very rarely, and no previous cases have described clinically-significant renal effects.
