||Benzene application to the tail skin of rats (64 and 320 mg/kg) for 4 months produced changes in the morphological structure of the gonads in both males and females. Fertilisation potential in males and conception capacity in females were not impaired by prolonged skin absorption of benzene. Offspring of exposed animals were less viable than those of controls owing to lesions of certain organs.
