Deltamethrin, an insecticide used in agriculture, may cause toxicity through inhalation, ingestion or parenteral administration. We described for the first time a pseudo-rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis due to intramuscular administration of deltamethrin with suicidal intent and emphasized predominant severe podocyte injury developed due to deltamethrin intoxication.
