Abstract

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the world and all type of suicides are remarkable for health workers. However, concurrent use of plaster diluted in water and fuel oil (gasoline) is new and odd. A 68-year-old man with previous history of suicide attempts was brought to the emergency department. He attempted suicide by consuming 50 gm of plaster powder diluted in water and gasoline (30 gm) concurrently. In the present case, due to low plaster ingestion (50 gm), the surgical intervention was not done; and the treatment approach was mainly conservative in nature. This composition is not reported as a method of suicide in the literature review.
