Abstract

We have presented two cases of serious respiratory injury after brief exposure to vapors from solid chlorine compounds. We could find no previous reports of such accidents and, therefore, have related these cases to alert the medical community. We would recommend that physicians caring for children include warnings about these preparations in their routine counseling of parents.
