||Eruptive cherry angiomas and irritant symptoms after one acute exposure to the glycol ether solvent 2-butoxyethanol
||Dec. 1998, Vol.40, No.12, p.1059-1064. 23 ref.
||Seven clerical workers were evaluated eight months after exposure to vapourized 2-butoxyethanol which had been applied overnight to clean an office floor. Four months after exposure, cherry angiomas began to appear on the bodies of six workers. Medical examination found no evidence of hematologic, liver, lung or renal toxicity, but elevations in the erythrocyte sedimentation rate and blood pressure of each subject were found. While irritant symptoms abated and the mild hypertension cleared, new cherry angiomas continued to appear five years after acute exposure, and the original ones persisted. The angiomas appear to have resulted from a single overexposure to 2-butoxyethanol. Topics: angiomas; butoxyethanol; eye irritation; glycol ethers; hypertension; irritation; short-term exposure; skin eruption; symptoms.
