Título Critical role of ethanol abuse in carbon tetrachloride poisoning
Información bibliográfica 22 Jan. 1994, Vol.343, No.8891, p.232. 3 ref.
Resumen A brief report on two cases of occupational poisoning after acute unprotected inhalation of carbon tetrachloride in which regular ethanol abuse by the patients appears to have been critical for toxicity. In each incident, one worker (in each case a heavy drinker) developed adverse liver and kidney effects while co-workers (who drank moderately) showed no significant effects. Thus, conditions of solvent exposure that are harmless to normal subjects may produce dramatic effects in heavy drinkers.
