“…The polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's) have been used extensively for diverse industrial purposes. Some of the first observations of the toxicity of PCB's to man were made on workers in the electrical industry (Schwartz, 1936;Good & Pensky, 1943;Peak, 1944). These people developed dermal cysts and comedos.…”

“…Some of the earliest documented indications of undesirable biological effects on humans were associated with the accelerated use of PCNs in the production of military equipment in the period before and during the Second World War. These studies (Flinn and Jarvik, 1936;Collier, 1943;Good and Pensky, 1943), associated PCNs with hepatic toxicity, which was fatal in some cases (Mcletchie and Robertson 1942;Strauss, 1944;Ward et al, 1996), but also with visible dermal conditions like severe chloracne (Shelley and Kligman, 1957) which were referred to as -Halowax rash‖ or -Cable rash‖ in personnel who worked on the electric cabling material. Most of the exposures in these workers were likely to arise from inhalatory or dermal absorption of PCNs during the heating of technical mixtures or the handling of products such as electric cables.…”
