An epidemic with two deaths occurred in a nursery in St. Louis after the use of pentachlorophenol as a mildew preventive with the laundry detergent. Samples of blood, urine, tissue, and clothing from the nursery were extracted with ethyl ether. The ether solution was extracted with 5% sodium hydroxide; the basic solution was acidified and then extracted with benzene. The benzene solution was analyzed by electron capture gas chromatography, using a 3% diethylene glycol succinate column with 2% sirupy phosphoric acid on 60-80 mesh Chromosorb G. Pentachlorophenol was found in the samples in sufficient quantity to account for the epidemic. The presence of pentachlorophenol was confirmed by gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy and by thin layer analysis.
