Between 3 June and 15 July 1967, four explosive outbreaks of acute poisoning with the insecticide endrin occurred in Doha, Qatat and Hofuf, Saudi Arabia. They resulted in the hospitalization of 874 persons and the death of 26 persons. This paper reports only the authors' chemical studies concerned with the outbreaks. It describes the method used, and summarizes the chemical evidence that endrin from contaminated flour was, in fact, the cause of illness. The paper also presents available measurements pertaining to the distribution of endrin and its rate of loss in man.
