A 32-year-old female was admitted with Organophosphorus (OP) poisoning and was managed with gastric lavage, intravenous pralidoxime, and atropine. On the 3rd day, she developed swelling and pain in the right upper extremity. Color Doppler confirmed upper extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT). In addition to the neurologic manifestations patients of OP poisoning patients should also be monitored carefully for the development of DVT as these agents can lead to persistent inflammatory response which increases the risk of DVT. Upper limb DVT is rare and generally secondary to cancer, strenuous exercise, and insertion of central venous catheters. We hereby report a rare case of the upper limb DVT following OP poisoning.
