Título Full thickness skin burns secondary to an unusual exposure to diquat dibromide
Información bibliográfica 1990, Vol.28, No.1, p.107-110. 4 ref.
Resumen The clothing of a pesticide applicator became saturated with diquat dibromide solution, allowing the material to accumulate in his boots. Exposure continued over one-and-a-half workdays, after which the applicator's feet had become so painful as to call for medical attention. Chemical burning of the feet was so severe that skin grafting was required. Eight months after grafting the skin had healed but the patient had not been able to tolerate standing for long enough to return to work.
