Tri methyl tin poisoning report of 2 cases

International Archives of Occupational and Environmental Health 41(1): 1-6

Tri methyl tin poisoning report of 2 cases

Two chemists exposed for 3 mo. to a mixture of dimethyl and trimethyltinchloride developed mental confusion with generalized epileptic seizures. Before the accident they complained of headache, episodes of violent pain sine materia in various organs and psychic disturbances (memory defects, loss of vigilance, insomnia, anorexia, disorientation). The clinical picture is rather similar to that caused by triethyltin, and it is likely that the substance responsible for the patients symptomatology is trimethyltincloride. Both patients recovered completely following removal from exposure.
