Comments

Several workers developed hematuria secondary to hemorrhagic cystitis after exposure to chlordimeform. The syndrome resolved within 2 to 8 weeks following termination of the exposure. A case of methemoglobinemia induced by chlordimeform was reported. [EPA Pesticides, p. 77-78] Short-term exposure may have effects on the nervous system causing impaired function; Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause urinary tract inflammation; Can be absorbed through skin; [ICSC]
