Clinical Information
  • Disorders associated with acute or chronic exposure to compounds containing arsenic (arsenicals) which may be fatal.

Chronic exposure is associated with mucosal irritation, desquamating rash, myalgias, peripheral neuropathy, and white transverse (mees) lines in the fingernails.
