ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- Phenylmercuric acetate is an organic mercurial used as a fungicide, herbicide, slimicide, and preservative. Although it is an organic mercurial compound, studies in animals and reports of human exposures indicate that its effects are similar to those of inorganic mercurials.
- This review is based on the properties of mercury compounds in general. Specific effects attributed to phenylmercuric acetate are identified.
- ACUTE INORGANIC MERCURY POISONING - The principal concerns are sudden, profound circulatory collapse with tachycardia, hypotension and peripheral vasoconstriction, vomiting, and bloody diarrhea. Renal failure usually develops within 24 hours and may be life-threatening.
- The brain is the critical organ for chronic inorganic mercury poisoning. Tremor and psychological changes such as increased irritability and sensitivity, may lessen xenophobia, insomnia, hallucinations, and mania.
- ONSET - Toxicity may be delayed up to weeks following exposure.
