    Treatment of Debendox poisoning with purgation and dialysis


    Accidental poisoning with delayed-release tablets causes symptoms at a time when the tablets can no longer be retrieved from the stomach.

A second child survived a similar overdose, having been subjected to vigorous purgation and peritoneal dialysis.
