patients of both genders presented with paraphenylene poisoning were enrolled

two (77.5%) were females while 18(22.5%) were males. The mean age was
24.32±6.54 years. Suicide was the most common reason for poisoning of PPD found
in 76 (95%) cases. Cervicofacial edema was the commonest symptom found in
74(92.5%) patients. Acute renal failure was observed in 65 (81.25%) patients.
From 65 ac renal failure patients 60(92.31%) were recovered after treatment
while 5 (7.69%) had residual renal damage.
of acute renal failure in paraphenylene diamine poisoning patients was very
high, however quick medical treatment helps to reduce the morbidity and
