A lindane - a brownish white colored, sand like powder with a phosgene like odor that emits toxic fumes of phosgene gas, hydrochloric acid and other chlorinated compounds when heated to decomposition. A hexachlorocyclohexane is the alpha isomer of hexachlorocyclohexane and is used as an insecticide to treat lice and scabies. Inhalation exposure to this substance causes severe irritation of the nose, throat and lungs; causes anemia, and affects the liver, kidneys, nervous system, cardiovascular system and immune system. A hexachlorocyclohexane is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen. (nci05)
