Organophosphorus poisoning by inhalational route in a young infant is rarely reported. A three month old female child with organophosphorus poisoning presented with respiratory failure and convulsions. In addition to atropine and pralidoxime, ketamine was added to management owing to its bronchodilator and antiepileptic properties. The child improved following initiation of ketamine infusion.
