Abstract A review of the toxicology of dioxin, a by-product of herbicide (2,4,5-T) manufacture, and of cases of human exposure. Occupational risks of dioxin exposure include both massive, acute exposure, as in the explosion at Seveso, Italy, in 1976, and low-level chronic exposure in the course of manufacture and application of herbicides.
