Reversible neurotoxicity after an overdose of topical lindane in an infant.

We herein describe an infant with reversible neurotoxicity following repeated applications of 1% lindane for the treatment of scabies. The role of factors predisposing to increased absorption and the recommendations to minimize potential neurotoxicity are emphasized.
