||Case study of carbon disulfide poisoning due to the use of a disinfectant in the cleaning of incubators. The subject was suffering from chronic carbon disulfide poisoning followed by treatment and, after a 1-year interruption of exposure, by an episode of acute poisoning brought on by renewed exposure. Chronic poisoning can result in psychological disturbances, anorexia, weight loss, diarrhea, and ultimately in sensomotor polyneuritis and in retrobulbar optic neuritis. The symptoms of acute poisoning are psychological, neurological and digestive problems. The disease is recognised as an occupational disease in France. This product (Lomasept) is still used in the silk industry and in agriculture as an insecticide.
