A case of non professional lead poisoning is described in a baker complaining of abdominal pain and anaemia. No organic alterations in the gastrointestinal and haemopoietic systems were observed. The diagnosis was confirmed by alterations in porphyrin metabolism and by increased blood and urine lead levels, especially after EDTA. The cause of intoxication was attributed to an abnormal lead intake during spray painting in a closed environment a few days before the onset of symptoms.
