A survey of reports concerning kinds, toxic action, and toxic quantity of arsenic derivatives and the method of arsenic determination was performed. By separating 14 cases with a clearly known amount of arsenic intake into 7 cases, each of more than 10 mg/kg arsenic intake and less than 4.9 mg/kg arsenic intake, respectively, the clinical pictures of these two groups were compared and the following results were obtained: In the group with a larger arsenic intake, all symptoms except for pigmentation were stronger. The pigmentations were nearly the same in both groups. Each degree of arsenic poisoning is proportional to the amount of arsenic intake, except for pigmentation. A summarry of the relation between arsenic determination of tissues and body fluids samples and clinical picture is presented.
