Cleistanthus collinus, a plant used for intentional self-harm have boosted the mortality rate over time. The toxic principles in the plant which do not have a challenger antidote are increasingly consumed by rural people with suicidal ideation. Mortality occurs due to arrhythmias, renal failure, shock and respiratory distress. Here, we report a case on a patient who consumed 6 leaves of Oduvan thalai.
