Pupillary miosis is characteristic of the cholinergic state of organophosphate intoxication and is commonly seen in opiate overdose. 25 Chapter 3 • Approach to the Outpatient with Suspected Neurotoxic Exposure Cranial Nerves III, IV, and VI Botulism commonly causes ophthalmoplegia, but so do many other biological toxins. A few include tetrodotoxin, tick paralysis neurotoxin, and certain arachnid and reptile venoms.

Some agents cause seizures directly by altering the balance between inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmission. Many other agents promote seizure activity indirectly by causing profound systemic derangements, such as hypoglycemia, hemodynamic collapse, or hypoxia. Table 3 provides a list of agents that may cause seizures directly. In general, toxin-induced seizures are treated in a similar fashion to those not associated with toxin ingestion. Clinicians should assure the patient maintains a patent airway, and blood glucose should be measured.
