The diagnosis of OPP solely depended upon: (1) evidence or history of exposure to OPCs within the previous twenty-four hours; (2) the odor of OPCs in the gastric contents; (3) distinctive signs of OPP, including meiosis, fasciculations and excessive salivation (4) improvement of the signs and symptoms of OPP after administration of high doses of atropine and/ or pralidoxime.
In addition to hypothermia, the main clinical signs observed during the phase of intoxication were fasciculations and prostration in animals.
Caption: Figure 2: FIGURE 2: Upon maturation of newborn granule cells in neurons, excess amounts of BDNF possibly induce branching of mossy fibers towards the SO, and exacerbated fasciculation may occur in [alpha]-CaMKII hKO mice.
Cramp fasciculation syndrome is a muscle hyperexcitability syndrome that may present with muscle cramps, stiffness and fasciculations.
(i) Clinical signs are usually totally absent (chronic latent intracellular deficit) (ii) Neuromuscular: weakness; tremor; muscle fasciculation; dysphagia; positive Chvostek's sign (facial twitching as a reaction to facial nerve tapping); positive Trousseau's sign (application of a pressure cuff to transiently occlude the brachial artery resulting in spasm of muscles of the hand and forearm) (iii) Cardiac: arrhythmias and ECG changes (iv) Central nervous system: depression, agitation, psychosis, nystagmus, and seizures Table 5: Etiology of magnesium deficiency [6].

Muscarinic symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, salivation, urination, stool incontinence, lacrimation, miosis, and bradycardia and nicotinic signs such as mascular weakness, fasciculation, paralysis, convulsion, and coma are found.
