Acute yellow phosphorus poisoning. "Smoking stool syndrome".

Abstract

Three cases of acute phosphorus poisoning are reported. The source of this poison was a rodenticide, which may be in more common use presently because of the increasing resistance of rodents to warfarin derivatives. The safest method of managing poisoning from this highly toxic substance is prevention. Two of the patients had a history of previous medicine overdose.
