Two cases of chronic Folidol intoxication were described. Both patients complained of oppressive feeling in upper abdomen, breast and head, since exposure to Folidol-spray. Case 1. A farmer aged 21. Two months after Folidol-spraying, investigation revealed a slight fever, a slight hyperchromic anaemia with relative lymphocytosis, achylia gafotrica, a decreased concentration in bile with a few gall-sands and an occasional tenderness on gall-bladder. Bromsulfalein test slightly positive (8%). A hypoglycaemia, hypotension, high sensitivity to pilocarpine, vanished patellar and Achilles tendon reflexes and a positive Sawada test in urine were also observed. None of the treatments given showed a favourable result. Case 2. A farmer, aged 27. Three months after Folidol-spraying, investigation revealed a slight fever, a hypochromic anaemia and a decrease in serum-cholinesterase activity (40%).
