Endrin is a white, solid, nearly odorless chemical that has been used to eradicate insects, rodents, and birds. It has not been available for sale or use or allowed to be manufactured in the United States since 1986. Endrin can be found in low levels in ground and surface water where it is mostly bound to the bottom sediment. It does bioaccumulate in the tissues of aquatic wildlife. Endrin is detectable in soil after application for as long as 10 years.[] Endrin is toxic if ingested, inhaled, or absorbed by the skin. If burned, endrin can produce toxic hydrogen chloride and phosgene. Symptoms of endrin poisoning include epileptiform convulsions, stupor, headache, dizziness, abdominal discomfort, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, aggressiveness, confusion, drowsiness, lassitude, and anorexia. Endrin is not classified as a human carcinogen.[PubChem:46174049] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
