||Clinical features of nine patients affected by chloracne and exposed chronically to chlorobenzenes in the same factory were studied. All the patients were male and their skin lesions were characterized mainly by comedones and cysts. They also had chronic conjunctivitis, polyneuropathy and liver damage and seven of them had hypertriglyceridaemia. In the water used in the workplace there were high concentrations of substances that are known to cause chloracne. In workers exposed to such compounds, systemic complications should also be investigated in addition to those of cutaneous manifestation of chloracne.
