THALLIUM

Number 81 on the "periodic table" of elements

Tests the presence of ions of thallium III to a high degree of accuracy to detect contamination in the body and on a wide range of materials in your environment


Thallium Toxicity and Symptoms
Thallium itself and compounds containing the element is highly toxic. It is particularly dangerous because the compounds containing thallium are colourless, odourless and tasteless. Thallium can be absorbed from the skin as well as inhaled and ingested. Just more than 1 gram or over 8 milligram per kg of body weight enters the body, symptoms of thallium poisoning develop.

Gastrointestinal symptoms:
These symptoms predominate early, usually within the first 3-4 hours, with the most common being abdominal pain with nausea/vomiting and diarrhea or constipation. It is important to remember that, unlike most other metal salts exposures, gastrointestinal findings in thallium toxicity may be mild or nonexistent, especially in chronic poisoning. Rarely, the vomitus and stools are bloody.

Neurologic symptoms:
These symptoms usually appear 2-5 days (though some reports are for < 24 h) postexposure and include severely painful, rapidly progressive, ascending peripheral neuropathies. This is generally the reason patients seek medical care. Pain and paresthesias of the hands and the lower extremities, especially the soles of the feet, are also common. Distal motor weakness occurs, with the lower limbs more affected than the upper limbs. Ataxia, tremor, athetosis, cranial nerve palsies, headache, seizures, insomnia, coma, and death may also occur.

Dermatologic symptoms:
The first cutaneous signs are not specific and include scaling of the palms and soles and acneiform or pustular eruptions of the face. During weeks 2-3, a sudden onset of hair loss quickly progresses to diffuse alopecia. The hair loss primarily affects the scalp, temporal parts of the eyebrows, the eyelashes, and the limbs. Less often, the axillary regions are affected. Hair discoloration may also occur. One month after the poisoning, Mees lines (transverse white lines on the nails) appear in the nail plate. Other dermatologic findings include crusted eczematous lesions, hypohidrosis, anhidrosis, palmar erythema, stomatitis, and painful glossitis with redness of the tip of the tongue.

Cardiovascular symptoms:
Include tachycardia and hypertension. Significant ongoing tachycardia may be associated with a poor prognosis.

Pulmonary symptoms:
Some patients can experience pleuritic chest pain or tightness upon exposure. The mechanism for this particular symptom is unclear.
