Epidemiology: No data available.
Teratogenicity: In an epidemiologic study of toluene and pregnancy, occupational exposures to toluene were said to be associated with an increased incidence of renal, urinary, gastrointestinal, and cardiac anomalies.Fetotoxicity (reduced fetal weight), behavioural effects (effects on learning and memory) and hearing loss (in males) were observed in the offspring of rats exposed by inhalation to toluene, in the absence of maternal toxicity.
Reproductive Effects: Many reports of reproductive effects of toluene abuse or heavy occupational exposure are confounded by mixed solvent exposure or fetal alcohol syndrome. Women exposed to toluene in lab work had a 4.7-fold increased risk of spontaneous abortions.
Mutagenicity: No data available.
Neurotoxicity: No data available.
