Cutaneous and ocular toxicology

Inhalational and dermal injury due to explosion of calcium hypochlorite.


PMID 19514924

Abstract

Calcium hypochlorite is a yellow-white powder widely used as a disinfectant in swimming pools. It releases chlorine gas when added to water and can cause respiratory effects. Dermal and eye injury can occur because of the caustic nature of chlorine. We report a case of chlorine toxicity and burns on a man's face due to the explosion of calcium hypochlorite while he was mixing it into the water.
