Abstract
A review of the literature on phenylmercurials (62384) reveals a great lack of unanimity as to the relative toxicity of various compounds in this group. Dermatitis due to phenylmercurials has been described frequently but no case of occupational systemic poisoning in a human has been reported. Studies involving phenylmercuric acetate, phenylmercuric benzoate, and phenylmercuric oleate do not point to a high degree of toxicity of these compounds for humans. Additional observations on human exposures are needed before definite conclusions can be drawn.
