The storage and metabolism of lindane (r-HCH) was studied in the female rat after the administration of a hepatotoxic dose of chlorobenzene. Impaired lindane metabolism was observed following a challenge dose of 1.12g chlorobenzene/kg. The data indicated that a hepatotoxic dose of chlorobenzene (CB) selectively impaired certain pathways, such as dehydrochlorination and the direct hydroxylation of lindane, to a greater extent than others, such as the dehydrogenation and dechlorination of lindane. Pretreatment with a subtoxic level of chlorobenzene produced: (1) significant increases in the dehydrogenation of lindane, (2) significant increase in the excretion of metabolites derived from the dehydrogenation of lindane through hexachlorocylohexene, r-HCCH, (4) significant improvement in the excretion of metabolites derived from CB-impaired dehydrochlorination of lindane as well as from the CB-impaired hydroxylation of lindane, and (5) significant reduction in the level of unaltered lindane stored in the adipose tissue.
