Resumen 6 persons treated pine and fir seedlings with an emulsion containing 1% lindane. 10 persons packed these plants for 2 days indoors. The plasma levels of lindane after treatment were 1.9-5.6ng/ml and after packing for 2 days 1.2-25.7ng/ml. Plasma levels of lindane, followed after exposure, decreased to half the initial values in 3-5 days. Planting resulted in plasma levels of lindane less than 0.2-22.3ng/ml at the end of the first week. Despite further planting, the lindane levels decreased to less than 0.2-3.5ng/ml at the end of the second week. Symptoms were not more frequent in a group of exposed planters compared to planters of untreated seedlings. Symptoms were not correlated to high lindane plasma levels.
