Solvents and neurotoxicity.

Author information

  • 1Department of Neurology, Boston University School of Medicine, MA, USA.


We describe the clinical evaluation of the nervous-system effects of solvent exposure. We review the current evidence in the epidemiological literature on neurotoxicological effects of solvents, and outline methods and issues to be taken into account in assessment of the patient whose symptoms may be related to solvent toxicity. Primary prevention of these disorders is essential, because treatment options are limited.
