Case reports of acute and chronic exposure to hydrogen cyanamide (DORMEX(®)) have been reported but mainly as a result of occupational or accidental exposure and without any mortality. We report a case of acute hydrogen cyanamide poisoning in a young male due to suicidal intent. The patient was managed under intensive care with all the standard protocols for detoxification. However, in spite of aggressive management, patient could not be rescued. An extensive literature search did not yield any similar case reports. Hence, we report this case to the medical community to be aware of the entity.
