Serum choinesterase level of control group (55 cases) was l00. 53+/-13. 8 and range was 74~125 unit. 2. Serum cholinesterase level were reduced markedly below 10 units in 10 cases of severe parathion intoxication. 3. With adequate treatment PAM & atropine, serum cholinesteraee level rose steadly from 3 rd hospital day to 7 th hospital day and thereafter marked rising was noted remarkable improvement of respiratory symptoms. 4.
