Abstract: A 29-year-old man working in a closed room was exposed to methylene chloride. 2 days later he developed acute renal failure and hepato-cellular damage. Despite the fact that methylene chloride is usually considered nontoxic, fatal cases have been described. It should be stressed that a good history, especially in those who work with materials of low toxicity, can explain complex clinical pictures, allowing proper treatment to be started. Our patient was treated by hemodialysis and recovered completely without residual hepatic damage.
