ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- USES: Limonene is a monoterpene and volatile hydrocarbon which occurs naturally in some trees and bushes. It is the predominant monoterpene in citrus oil and widely used as a flavor and fragrance additive for food and household cleaning products and solvents.
- TOXICOLOGY: Limonene is C10 cyclic olefin or terpene. It has relatively low toxicity.
- EPIDEMIOLOGY: Limonene is very commonly used in food and cleaning products, thus exposures are frequent. However, serious toxicity is rare.
- WITH POISONING/EXPOSURE
- MILD TO MODERATE TOXICITY: Mild to moderate toxicity typically consists of mild dermal irritation and skin sensitization. Ingestion of limonene may produce burning pain in the throat, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
- SEVERE TOXICITY: Severe toxicity is typically due to large ingestion or aspiration. Severe toxicity is usually due to other ingredients in the product containing limonene. Aspiration can lead to pneumonitis and pulmonary edema. Large ingestions may produce hematuria, albuminuria, fever, dyspnea, tachycardia, and central nervous system effects including excitement, delirium, ataxia, and stupor.
