||The health status of 25 shoe factory workers exposed to adhesives containing toluene was examined. The MAC for toluene in workplace air was exceeded, and the urine of the exposed persons had elevated levels of hippuric acid. Subjective neurovegetative complaints were recorded in 85% and objective neurotic symptoms in 60% of the workers. EEG recordings differed from those seen in healthy members of the general population.
