MedLine Citation:
PMID:  968689     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Six cases of lead encephalopathy in Black children are described. There was a delay in the diagnosis of the first 4 cases, partly owing to a lack of awareness of the possibility of exposure to lead in this population. The importance of the safe disposal of industrial wastes is stressed.
