Describes a study involving 30 non‐smoking, white‐collar patients (aged 25‐50), 12 male, 18 female, chronically exposed (over 90 days) to non‐lethal doses of solvents – formaldehyde and chlorinated pesticides – in their offices. They exhibited short‐term memory loss, lack of concentration and balance, odor sensitivity and fatigue. When compared to control individuals, these people had objective brain dysfunction on triple camera brain (SPECT) CAT scan, brain mapping by multiple behavioral analysis, computerized balance testing, computerized Iriscorder for automatic nervous system measuring, inhaled double blind challenge, intradermal challenge and blood toxics. Toxic encephalopathy could then be diagnosed.
