Super Vasmol 33 is a hair dye commonly used as suicidal poisoning in India. Paraphenylene Diamine (PPD) is a major component of the hair dye which when ingested in a dose-dependent manner results in severe cervicofacial oedema causing airway obstruction. Endotracheal intubation in early stages of oedema can avoid the need for tracheotomy.
