A fatal chlordane poisoning.


Chlordane was, prior to regulatory action by EPA in 1976, an extensively used insecticide for both household and agricultural pest control purposes. It was readily available to the general public for many years; thus, human exposure, including poisonings, has been documented. A case reporting fatal chlordane ingestion with residue levels in various body tissues is presented. Analyses were performed by gas-liquid chromatography. The highest residue levels were reported in stomach contents, liver, brain, and adipose tissue.
