||Conclusions of this criteria document, translation of a report finalized in October 1993: acute phenylhydrazine intoxication in humans causes methaemoglobinaemia, cyanosis and haemolysis; severe intoxication results in changes to the pupils, motor unrest and convulsions. Phenylhydrazine vapour is highly irritating (dry cough). The substance is readily absorbed through undamaged skin and is a skin irritant. All clinical symptoms are reversible. There is evidence of a sensitizing effect. Carcinogenic effects have been observed in experimental animals.
