Significant characteristics of increasing symptoms with increasing number of previous exposure to pesticide were seen by the somatisation, obsessivecompulsiveness, interpersonal sensitivity, anxiety and especially depression. Moreover, the increased probability of suicidal ideation significantly associated with the increased of the episodes of exposure to pesticides.
