A 53 year old man became unconscious while applying a methylene chloride based paint stripping product. No respirator was worn and the only ventilation was an open window. Two generalised convulsions were noted but no cardiac irregularities were recorded. He developed first and second-degree chemical burns to the areas of his skin that had been in contact with the liquid (about 24% of his body surface area).
