Abstract Studies indicate that diethyl phthalate does not cause any irritation or symptoms of intoxication on repeated contact with workers' skin, but it does cause a temporary irritation of mucous membranes; it is probably not sensitizing. Systemic effects in experimental animals are not very pronounced, the target organ being the liver; long-term studies of carcinogenicity are not available.
