||Conclusions of this criteria document, translation of a report finalized in August 1993: acute intoxication by inhalation of tetrachloroethylene causes irritation of the mucosa, respiratory tract and eyes and depression of the central nervous system. Chronic exposure also causes effects on the central nervous system and there is some evidence of liver damage. Epidemiological data from studies of dry cleaning workers are presented. There is insufficient evidence for the carcinogenic potential or antifertility effects of tetrachloroethylene in humans.
