The form of study is retrospective with quantitative approach. The data sources used were DATASUS and the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics – IBGE. Papers published in journals, BIREME database, LILACS, SciELO and data from the Ministry of Health were an additional sources. The results showed that in the period from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2017, the total number of reports of endogenous intoxication by municipality of residence was 60 cases, and Macapá was the municipality that contributed with maximum notifications which is 86.6%. The most prevalent age group for exposure to toxic agents is the group of young adults between 20 and 39 years of age, with an average of 50% of the total cases with a predominance of female representing 53%. Among the substances that mostly caused these type of poisonings are the use Raticide with 30% and the use of drugs with 18%.
