Overview of the neurotoxic effects in solvent-exposed workers.
Keywords: neurotoxicity syndromes, organic solvents, chronic toxic encephalopathy
|Workers exposed to solvents are at risk to develop a chronic toxic encephalopathy, although effects (promoting or etiological) on other central and pheripheral nervous system diseases may be possible. Careful monitoring of exposure (environmental monitoring and bio-monitoring) but also bio-effect monitoring is strictly needed. A review of the literature is given. This text is the summary of the report made for the Fund for Occupational Diseases (Fonds voor de Beroepsziekten), Belgium, 1998.|
