||This report reviews environmental and toxicological data on p-dichlorobenzene. Data on the adverse health effects of this substance in humans are limited. In one study of exposed workers, irritation of the eyes and nose was reported but there was no evidence of organic injury or haematological effects. Available data are inadequate to assess the carcinogenicity of p-dichlorobenzene in humans; on the basis of animal studies, it has been classified as possibly carcinogenic in humans.
