PMID:  11219129     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of a superficial burn following exposure to CS incapacitant spray is reported. This is followed by a summary of the properties and effects of CS and the other agents which occur in the incapacitant spray. CS is relatively safe, but it does have unwanted effects, especially on skin exposure. Possible contributing factors to the production of a skin burn are discussed.
