Although no arsenic was detected from the dried milk additives, 9.38% of arsenious acid was determined from sodium phosphate. This was considered to be the cause of the poisoning. Concerning the infants who died or who were under treatment, no clear conclusion could be drawn, because the degree of the symptoms, the period of disease, and the starting period of the treatment were not known, and the number of samples was insufficient. However, in the organs of the infants who died, the greatest amount of arsenic was detected in liver, then followed by kidney, small intestine, and bone. The amount in them was quite small. For those under treatment, the greatest amount of arsenic was detected in hair and nails.
