Brief Answer:
Gastrointestinal symptoms are likely if it has been taken orally

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I would be glad if you could provide some more clarifications about the issue and whether the 'super glue' has been ingested orally. In such a case you should look for symptoms like nausea, vomiting and difficulty in swallowing.

Based on your inputs I would perhaps be able to guide you further.

Brief Answer:
Allergic reactions could occur

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing back. Sorry for not being able to respond faster.

I think that you should take the concerned person to the hospital without delay. Allergic reactions can be expected. Other symptoms that could occur are heart rate irregularities, respiratory distress and fall in urinary output. Proper observation and monitoring is required.
