A case of bilateral hemorrhagic pleural effusion due to diesel ingestion

Many constituents of diesel such as benzene, toluene, xylene, butadiene, and others are toxic to humans [1,2]. Hydrocarbon poisoning and diesel intoxication usually occur by inhalation or occupational percutaneous absorption [3–5]. Diesel is not readily absorbed through the intact skin, but it can be absorbed more efficiently by the lungs and the gastrointestinal tract, due to its volatility [6]. Both…
