Solvents are commonly used in many industries and therefore exposure to multiple solvents is a common occupational hazard. A myriad of peripheral and central nervous system toxic effects can be produced by both acute and chronic low level exposures. Dizziness is often an early symptom of solvent exposure but has only in recent times been investigated specifically. The indications from the studies reviewed are that vestibular disturbances are common in workers exposed to solvents and dose-response relationships need to be established for early detection of vestibulo-toxicity.
