Myelofibrosis and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis associated with toluene poisoning

Hum Toxicol. 1988 Jul;7(4):357-61. doi: 10.1177/096032718800700411.

Abstract

A 60-year-old man with long-term exposure to toluene presented with both myelofibrosis and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. There was also evidence of other toluene-related complications to support the diagnosis of toluene toxicity. The toxic effects of toluene, particularly kidney disorders and haematotoxicity, suggest a relationship between toluene, myelofibrosis and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis.
