Abstract

We review issues that cloud the diagnosis of neurotoxic disease, and stress the importance of a directed history. Since an enormous number of potentially toxic chemicals are now deployed in the environment, workplace, and pharmaceuticals, it is essential that physicians be alert to elementary principles of clinical neurotoxicology in order that they pinpoint genuine instances of neurotoxicity and not alarm the public with spurious cases.
