Abstract : Organic compounds of tin are highly toxic. However, the nature of their effects differs from one to another. The multiple damages caused by organic compounds of tin in the central nervous system, liver, lungs and other organs present a great danger for those coming in contact with these substances under industrial conditions. Many questions of the toxicology of organic compounds of tin remain to be investigated. These concern, primarily, damages in the organism upon inhalation of tin compounds, and the chronic effect of small dosages. (Author)
