||Follow-up of 214 patients with the most commonly encountered types of poisoning (caused by ethylene, vinyl chloride, trichloroethylene, mercury and its compound granosanum-64) as well as with occupational pathology due to antibiotics (penicillin and streptomycin). Neurological symptoms often develop in combination with symptoms of organic lesions of different parts of the brain. Ethylene, vinyl chloride, and trichloroethylene affect mainly the mesencephalon and caudal regions, whereas mercury affects the brain stem and cerebellum. Antibiotics produce circulatory disorders confirmed by visual disorders.
