Neurophysiological studies were carried out in 6 female workers of an electromechanical works after accidental exposure to toluene vapours. EEG abnormalities and vestibular hyporeflexia were detected immediately after the accident. 6 months later the EEG changes were still present, while vestibular findings were found to be markedly improved. Results of this study provide further evidence of the diagnostic value of vestibular investigations after toxic exposure to toluene.
