Dettol a mixture of 4.8% chloroxylenol, 9% pine oil, and 12% isopropyl alcohol, is a popular household disinfectant. Serious complications of Dettol poisoning include aspiration, pneumonia, adult respiratory distress syndrome, shock, acute coronary syndrome, and cardiopulmonary arrest. We report a patient with Dettol poisoning who developed tracheal ulceration complicated by diffuse subcutaneous emphysema bilateral pneumothorax and pneumomediastinum. To the best of our knowledge, tracheal ulceration following Dettol poisoning was not reported previously.
