Paraquat poisoning is almost fatal if associated with the features of systemic toxicity. In this case report, we present a case of fatal paraquat poisoning and a detailed review of its intoxication, systemic manifestations, and recent development in its management. We conclude that in a case of severe paraquat poisoning, even aggressive and invasive therapies in an intensive care unit are unlikely to improve prognosis.
