Abstract

Formic acid is a commonly available compound, available commercially for the purpose of coagulating rubber. It is a highly corrosive agent. Consumption of this pungent liquid has resulted in dire consequences, based on the available literature. There have been a few reports of accidental/suicidal consumption of formic acid in the past. This is one such case report of an accidental poisoning with formic acid, with successful management and recovery.
