Abstract

Leather protectors are used extensively for waterproofing leather garments. Inhalation exposure to this type of product is usually considered a benign incident. We report two cases of acute pulmonary toxicity associated with the use of a new leather protector recently introduced to the Canadian market. Emergency physicians must be aware of the potential acute toxicity of new leather protectors.
