We are reporting 2 cases of accidental eucalyptus oil ingestion presenting with status epilepticus. Both the cases presented to our hospital casualty actively convulsing within half hour of eucalyptus oil consumption. As there is no specific antidote for eucalyptus oil, the cases were managed with appropriate supportive treatment. The extreme toxicity of eucalyptus oil poisoning is being emphasized. To the best of our knowledge there are no reports of children presenting with status epilepticus following eucalyptus oil poisoning from India.
