ABSTRACT
Acute sodium dichromate poisoning is a rare occurrence. But incidences of accidental or suicidal ingestion of compounds like this may increase due to its wide use and easy accessibility in textile, printing and paper works the demand for which has increased over the last few years. Diagnosis in such cases can only be done based on the history, clinical and postmortem findings. Chemical analysis in such cases may not be helpful.
