Chronic inflammation of the skin and mucous membranes following prolonged exposure to high doses of toxic hexavalent chromium is well known in the occupational medical literature. Perforation of the nasal septum is a cardinal clinical feature. Late development of cancer in the respiratory system is established. A recently diagnosed case with an unusually severe affect on the eyes is described. The industrial usage of chromium and its toxicological profile is reviewed.
