[Toxic effects of cadmium on the human body (literature review)].

[Article in Russian]


A review of the literature about the toxic effects of cadmium on the human body. We describe a patient with clinical and biochemical signs of an attack of acute porphyria imitated or severe lead poisoning. In the patient's blood was revealed a 3-fold, compared to the allowable rate, increase of cadmium in the normal lead content. We discuss the etiologic role of cadmium and the possible pathogenetic mechanisms of this pathological condition.
