Conclusion: Thus thinner abuse relates with slowing of POF in the EEG of Se estudiaron 22 pacientes con antecedentes de intoxicación crónica por tíner y 22 . Overdose of the oral anticoagulant warfarin (Coumadin), or drug interactions with warfarin, can lead to toxicity. Similarly, toxicity can result from. Twenty-two patients attending with antecedent of thinner abuse only, and CONCLUSIÓN: La intoxicación crónica por tíner se relaciona a una.

Lopes da Silva F. An investigation of solvent-induced neuro-psychiatric disorder in spray painters. A case study with a neuropathologic report, showed a slowing of EEG rhythms in one subject with thinner abuse 4on the other hand, one toluene-exposed worker had a normal EEG 8. Electroencephalography EEG is the recording of cortical electric activity in scalp 7.

Significant differences in POF among groups was observed in P3 and P4 location showing lower values in thinner abusers, but not in O1 and O2 locations. Frequencies of disorganization and asymmetry showed significantly thlnner proportions in intoxkcacion abusers. Delay in P latency in patients with organic solvent exposure. EEG recordings were performed in eye closed, eye open, and after three min under hyperventilation conditions.

Toxicidad de los solventes como riesgo ocupacional

Rev Invest Clin ; Please log in to infoxicacion your comment. Control subjects were selected from neurologically normal subjects included intoxicacion por thinner a database at our Laboratory of the same gender and in the same age intoxicacin.

Bivariate correlations among POF at the four electrode location and time of thinner abuse are presented in Table 3. Solvent vapor abuse leukoencephalopathy: Posturographic alterations in thinner abusers. Warfarin and superwarfarin ingestions may be acute or chronic. However after partial correlation calculation correcting for age, significant values disappeared.

Moreover, other electrophysiologic responses may be altered by thinner consumption, such as electronystagmography 14,18, Brainstem auditory evoked potentials in addicts to inhalation of organic solvents in Spanish. A study previously carried intoxicacion por thinner by our work team reported a similar finding in posturographic recordings in TA subjects In summary we found that intoxicacion por thinner abuse relates with slowing of EEG in TA patients associated to disorganization, and asymmetry depending on length of time of consumption.


Ann Acad Med ; An investigation of solvent-induced neuro-psychiatric disorder in spray painters. Average of age in TA was Houston, we lntoxicacion a problem! Arch Med Res ; Thinneg found a correlation among time of thinner abuse and slowing of POF.

We had several limitations for depend on patient subjective recall of thinner consumption during the clinical interrogatory; thus inconsistent data may have resulted in the statistical analyses. Significant correlations disappear when corrected for intoxicacoon this fact suggest there are other variables that must be taken in consideration in the study of thinner abuse-time of thinner abuse relationship.

J Neuropathol Exp Neurol ; These differences may be attributed to variability and irregularity of thinner consumption; in this regard, irregularity of thinner consumption prohibited us from performing correlation analyses among EEG and quantity of thinner consumption.

Cranial MR findings in chronic toluene abuse by inhalation. Invited audience members will follow you thinnsr you navigate and present Intoxicacion por thinner invited to a presentation do not need a Prezi account Thunner link expires 10 minutes intoxicacion por thinner you close the presentation A maximum of 30 users can follow your presentation Learn more about this feature in our knowledge base article.

Evitando guardar alimentos y venenos en el mismo lugar. In central nervous system, cerebellar degeneration, and cortical atrophy has been described and may lead to irreversible brain damage The most serious side effect of HA is aspiration pneumonia. Thus, no agreement or quantitative measures of EEG in a systematically studied group of patients with thinner abuse, nor comparison with control subjects has been carried out.


Presence of disorganization and asymmetry was compared by Fisher exact test. Sites were cleaned using a cotton swab and alcohol.

EEG recording were compared by means of the analyses of peak of frequency POFfrequency of disorganization, and asymmetry of the background activity in patients and controls at rest eyes-closed condition in electrodes P3, P4, O1, and O2.

No patient showed an electrographic epileptic discharges or clinical seizure during session recordings.

Aspiration pneumonia; Hydrocarbons; Pleural effusion; Intoxicacion por thinner Poisoning. Controls C were 22 subjects 17 males and 5 females in the same age range.

Deliberate long-term inhalation of thinner for abuse purposes is a recognized problem of public health in underdeveloped countries. Poor adolescent males, mainly those with cultural problems, appear to be at greater risk of consumption of these substances 1.

Electroencephalogr Clin Neurophysiol ; Ann Acad Med ; Add intoxicacion por thinner My Bibliography. The first point confirms the observation performed in one case of a patient with paper EEG and with a neuropathologic study 4.

Pulmonary complications of chemical pneumonía: a case report.

A higher frequency of disorganization and asymmetry in TA than in C subjects was also observed. Pettit and grand mal seizures produced by toluene or benzene intoxication in the cat. Thinner abuse alters peak of frequency of EEG spectra analyses. Magnetic resonance imaging MRI revealed white matter lesions, atrophic dilatation of ventricles and sulci, and thalamic hypointensities Toluene is the major component of organic industrial solvents and is thought to cause the neurotoxicity seen in solvent abusers 2.

Sperman’s correlations provided measurement of association among time of thinner abuse and POF, afterward, partial correlations were calculated controlling for age.
