Abstract

Accidental/suicidal ingestion of metal phosphides (e.g., zinc phosphide found in rodenticides) should be suspected in patients with sudden-onset abdominal pain, refractory hypotension, and metabolic acidosis. CT angiography may show radiopaque substance in the stomach and early enhancement of the inferior vena cava and contrast in right side of the heart.
