||Chronic occupational intoxication with toluene in rotogravure printers

||Five rotogravure printers with an average of 18 years exposure to toluene (mean concentration 250ppm) experienced repeated feelings of inebriation during the workshift with pseudohallucinations at increased toluene concentrations. Clinical neurological examination revealed no significant deviations from the norm. Electroneuromyography was negative in all of them. Slight abnormalities were observed in three electroencephalograms and in three visual evoked potentials. Detailed psychological examination revealed neuropsychological impairment in four workers. As a result of the examinations, three workers received occupational disease compensation.
