Abstract:

Organophosphate compounds are commonly used in agricultural fields to control insects and pests. The Indian spectacled cobra (Naja naja; Linnaeus, 1758) is one of the four major venomous snakes found on different terrains in Gujarat, India. Diagnosis and therapeutic management of clinical diseases of Indian spectacled cobra are not published at length. The present report documents the first record of accidental poisoning by organophosphate in an Indian spectacled cobra along with elucidation on clinical signs and successful therapeutic management.
