This case series examined the demographic details and outcome of seven pediatric paraquat (PQ) poisoning patients admitted to a teaching hospital in North India from February to October 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. All were adolescents and had intentionally ingested PQ for suicide; four died in spite of best recommended immunomodulator and anti-inflammatory therapy and hemodialysis (HD) due to multiorgan failure. We hope that the data would be of useful to clinicians who deal with poisoning.
