||m-Dinitrobenzene is rapidly absorbed following inhalation or dermal or oral exposure. Main symptoms of mild acute poisoning are hypoxia and gastrointestinal disturbances. Severe poisoning causes icterus and symptoms associated with methaemoglobinaemia. Chronic poisoning leads to hypoxia, icterus and disturbances of vision. Animal studies indicate that m-dinitrobenzene is very toxic; mutagenic and antifertility effects have been observed; no studies of carcinogenicity are available.
