Abstract

A 31-year-old woman ingested hexachlorophene (pHisoHex) over a ten month period. She developed bilateral optic atrophy with no other systemic evidence of neurotoxicity. This case supports pathologists' findings that the optic nerve and chiasm are particularly sensitive to the poisonous effects of hexachlorophene.
